Ten women and six men will serve as jurors and alternates in Shawn Smoot's first-degree murder trial in Kingston.
The jury was selected early Wednesday evening. Criminal Court Judge Jeff Wicks allowed the 16 to go home Wednesday before their sequestration begins Thursday.
"You will have to be escorted at all times when you're not in your rooms," Wicks told the jurors before adjouring court Wednesday. "You cannot have any outside company at all."
