Two African-American women were selected to serve as the two final alternates this afternoon, completing the jury selection process.
R. Kelly sighed as he walked out of the small back room where Judge Gaughan has been conducting jury interviews. The news that the selection process was complete was announced moments later at 3:45 p.m.
Judge Gaughan is due to rule tomorrow morning on a motion by the media allowing access to court records currently under seal. Kelly will have to attend, Gaughan said.
The trial itself starts 11 a.m. Tuesday.
