Jury selection continues in Peachtree Mall murder trial

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Day two of the trial of the 2016 cold-blooded murder of 24-year-old Anthony Meredith at Peachtree Mall is off to another slow start.

Attorneys spent the majority of the day questioning potential jurors as they work to narrow the number down to 12 along with 2 alternates.

They say they are looking for a jury pool that will be unbiased and fair, especially for a special case such as this one.

The three suspects, Xzavien Jones, his sister, Tekoa Young, and Terrell McFarland all face charges of murder, aggravated assault, and gang membership.

The case is expected to last at least the remainder of the week, and could possibly go into to next week.

The trial is set to resume Wednesday morning at 9 a.m.
