Jury selection nears completion, murder trial scheduled to begin Monday

NORWICH Members of the community were asked if they had any ties to witnesses, the defendant, or the court during the jury selection process for the murder of veteran David Green, and eventually 12 were chosen.

Monday morning in the Chenango County Courthouse, every member of the county's District Attorney's Office and Public Defender's Office were present for the jury selection process, along with the defendant Jeremy Coates.
