Jury Questions Approved in Wesson Case

ABC30 News/January 14, 2005

Potential jurors who may be chosen to hear the Marcus Wesson mass murder trial can expect to be questioned about their religion.

The judge ruled Thursday to put the question, "What is your religious affiliation?" on the jury questionaire. During the preliminary hearing, police witnesses described Wesson as a man who dominated his family and used his religious beliefs to impose a murder-suicide pact.

Wesson is accused of killing nine of his children in March of 2004.

The victims were found dead and stacked in a bedroom.

The defense has said Wesson's daughter, Sebrehna, shot her eight siblings and then killed herself.

Potential jurors will also be asked what's their political party affiliation.

The Wesson murder trial is set to begin January 25th.
