Murder defendant Lucas Goodrum was back in court today for the second day of jury selection in his death penalty murder trial.

14 potential jurors were dismissed yesterday during individual questioning.

All of the more than 120 potential jurors will be questioned over the next 2 days about whether they could sentence someone to death, and how much media coverage of the case they've seen.

All of the jurors not dismissed during individual questioning will be back on Monday afternoon for group questioning.

Goodrum is accused of raping and killing WKU freshman Katie Autry in May of 2003.

Opening arguments in the case are expected to begin late Monday or Tuesday.
