Update for those who’ve been asking: After three weeks of proceedings, the Morgan Junction murder trial hasn’t reached the jury-selection phase yet. Pre-trial motions have continued all month for 69-year-old Lovett Chambers, on trial for second-degree murder in the shooting death of 35-year-old Travis Hood on January 21st, 2012. We’ve been checking in with the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office; this morning, WSB’s Katie Meyer went to the courthouse for an in-person update. She learned that jury selection might start this afternoon. Once a jury is in place, they’ll move to opening statements and testimony, expected to take at least a month.
