More info from shreveporttimes.com:
"Last week, the Louisiana Supreme Court granted a man charged with killing a Shreveport Police Officer a new jury selection and the trial may change locations for a second time.'
"Cannon's trial started March 25 in East Baton Rouge due to pre-trial publicity that the defense argued would stifle a fair trial if it were set in Caddo Parish. After weeks of selecting the jury in Baton Rouge, the selection process will begin with a new jury pool. The prosecution asked the entire trial be moved back to Caddo Parish where it originated, according to court documents filed Wednesday.'
"Cannon’s defense asked for a new jury pool because people younger than 26 years old were not members of the group of qualified jurors. A software glitch unintentionally excluded jurors born after June 2, 1992 from the pool. Cannon’s request for a new jury pool was denied by a Baton Rouge judge and by the Louisiana Court of Appeal before the state Supreme Court ruled in his favor."
