Jury selected for Chicago murder trial
by UPI

CHICAGO - Twelve jurors have been seated for the trial of a man charged in the 1993 slaying of seven people at a Brown's Chicken restaurant in suburban Chicago.

Juan Luna, 33, could receive the death penalty if convicted of the murders that took place in west suburban Palatine, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Nearly 150 potential jurors were questioned in Cook County Circuit Court over a six-day period.

Among the 12 jurors selected is a self-described former drug dealer who was convicted 15 years ago of possession with intent to deliver marijuana.

Also chosen was a former Navy sailor, a community policing volunteer, a fire-sprinkler installer and an engineer.

When the trial resumes Monday, the process of selecting alternate jurors will continue.

Luna's co-defendant in the case, James Degorski, 34, will be tried separately.
