Parkland shooter’s jury search restarts anew amid dispute

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Jury selection in the trial of Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz must start over after a dispute over a possible judge's error. Prosecutors persuaded Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer on Monday that she should start over after she failed to question some potential jurors she dismissed. Cruz's attorneys strongly disagreed. The decision nullifies two weeks of work by lawyers for the prosecution and defense. Jury selection began anew Monday. The jury that is eventually chosen will ultimately decide whether Cruz is to be sentenced to death — or receive life without parole — for the murders of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in 2018.
