Thursday of this week sparked the beginning of jury selection in the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter case.  160 prospective jurors were summoned and given a 27-page questionnaire to fill out at the L.A. Superior Court.  The forms will be used to narrow the selection of potential jurors down to 100.  From there they will be questioned by the attorneys from both sides in open court on May 4th.

The trial is scheduled to begin on the 9th of May with opening arugments.
