A Bend murder trial starts today. It only took one day for jury selection in the trial of Richard Clark, the Bend man who's been accused of killing his roommate with a baseball bat. Wednesday's jury selection went quickly and Clark's trial is set to begin today. Clark is accused of killing Matthew Fitzhenry, 36, in October of 2010.
Our news partner, News Channel 21 reports that during jury selection, Defense Attorney Jacques DeKalb asked potential jurors if they could be fair and impartial, even if they know many of the possible witnesses were on drugs at the time of the crime. Several jurors said they were uncomfortable and did not trust anyone who used drugs.
