Peter Smith and Mark Scolforo of the Associated Press report that jury selection has begun in the trial of Robert G. Bowers, the man accused of murdering 11 worshipers at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh in 2018. Federal prosecutors informed the potential jurors that the government is pursuing the death penalty. Smith and Scolforo write, “Most said they would be able to consider a sentence of death or life in prison, though a couple of candidates in the afternoon said they were mostly or entirely opposed to the death penalty.”
