The jury is now in place for the trial of the man accused of opening fire outside the Tulsa County Courthouse in March 2012.

Andrew Dennehy faces multiple charges, including two counts of shooting with intent to kill.

Day three of the trial began this morning at 9.

More than 40 potential jurors were still waiting to find out if they will serve on this case.

Defense attorney Allan Smallwood explained to the potential jurors the details of how they would need to find the defendant innocent or guilty.

He told jurors they would need to determine if Dennehy was sane during the time of the act.

He advised if they had any reasonable doubt of the facts in this case, they were to find the defendant innocent.

He said if Dennehy is found innocent, he would not be a free man.

Ultimately it took about five hours for the defense and the state to narrow that number of potential jurors down to 14.

Seven men and seven women were selected to determine Dennehy's fate. Two of those will serve as alternates.

All they will have to do is watch the surveillance video and the trial will be over, but apparently it doesnt completely support what the deputy's were given medals for.
