The murder trial of Norman Eli Larue starts today in Whitehorse.
Larue is charged in connection with the 2008 murder of Gordon Seybold.
The trial, which is expected to take several months, is one of the largest ever to take place in the territory.
An exhaustive search for jurors concluded yesterday, with the selection of 14 jurors and two alternates.
The sheriff’s office sent out 1,300 summonses last month. About 800 people responded.
During the selection process, a few of potential jurors failed to return from the break.
Warrants have been issued for those six people. They could face a fine for skipping out on the selection.
