A Tulsa county judge adjourned jury selection for the trial of Terrico Bethel on Tuesday afternoon.

The delay came because Bethel's lawyer suffered a medical condition.  Bethel is on trial for the 2008 murder of businessman Neal Sweeney.  Prosecutors allege Sweeney was killed as part of a murder for hire plot.  Four other people were arrested in connection to his death.

One of those suspects later committed suicide during a police stand off, another suspect agreed to testify against other suspects.

Jury selection is expected to continue on Wednesday.

Just a tactic to delay the trial because she knows she can't win, this man is a career criminal, and this time he will go up for a long time. She needs to be taken off the case and someone else appointed or hired, these thugs need to go to trial, they are trash.
