For those interested…
Jury selection is scheduled to begin this morning in Martinez in the murder trial of 17-year-old Scott Dyleski of Lafayette.
The teenager is accused of the Oct. 15 killing of 52-year-old Pamela Vitale at the Lafayette home she shared with her husband, lawyer and legal commentator Daniel Horowitz.
On Friday, Contra Costa County Superior Court Judge Barbara Zuniga denied a defense motion to move the murder trial out of the county because of allegedly prejudicial pretrial publicity.
Zuniga ruled that moving the trial would do no good, saying “The nature of the crime will be the same wherever this case is tried.”
Jury selection is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. in Department 2 of the A.F. Bray Building, 1020 Ward St., Martinez.
I wonder how long this will take?
