54 potential jurors were excused 46 remain.......

#‎JodiArias‬ update, c/o Beth Karas:
From the first panel of 100 potential jurors, 54 were excused (19 for being partial and 35 because of scheduling conflicts). The remaining 46 jurors are filling out the lengthy questionnaire and will return next week for voir dire (questioning by the attorneys). The judge instructed potential jurors and Arias not to use social media. Apparently, the judge changed the outside date of the trial from Dec. 12 to Dec. 21. I'll update as I get information, and expect to be in Phoenix next week.
[The outside date has been changed again and is now at Dec. 18.]
