Jury selection nears finish in Levy slaying

D.C. Superior Court Judge Gerald Fisher and the attorneys spent about three hours interviewing the last of about 50 potential jurors. On Friday, the defense and prosecution will each get a chance to remove as many as 12 jurors as a panel of 12 jurors and four alternates is chosen to hear the case.
Opening statements in the trial of Ingmar Guandique are scheduled to start Monday.
