And we have lights. I thought I was going to have to depend on just the warm glow from my laptop in court this morning. I was waiting for attorneys to argue motions before jury selection starts in the Jerome Power murder trial when the lights flickered off. They were out about five minutes or so.
Sixth Judicial District Judge Fae Hoover-Grinde just announced it was something the county does once a month. I’m not sure why, but we have lights now.
Jury selection will not start until 1 p.m.
Power, 50, charged with first-degree murder, is accused in the strangulation death of Doris Bevins, 68, in 2010. Power filed several pro se motions and those will be addressed before jury selection starts.
