Four jurors were seated Monday in Clarksville. Attorneys took more than six hours to pick their first juror, an older man, before adding three more at the end of the day. As of Monday, two women and two men sat on the jury for 30-year-old Dunn, who's charged in the 2005 death of Dirksmeyer. Read more about the first day and jury selection.
By 3:30 Tuesday afternoon, 11 jurors had been seated, six women and five men, and one more is needed.
Circuit Judge Bill Pearson says he hopes to pick three alternates as well. The jury will hear the murder case against 30-year-old Dunn.
Pearson dismissed several potential jurors who had medical problems. He also dismissed a woman whose grandson was once roommates with Kevin Jones, Dirksmeyer's former boyfriend who was acquitted of her murder.
Defense attorneys plan to argue that Jones is the killer. Prosecutors say Jones has had his day in court and that DNA links Dunn to the crime.
