Jurors still being selected in Trevor Dooley manslaughter trial

TAMPA — Attorneys are expected to complete jury selection Wednesday in the manslaughter trial of Trevor Dooley, a 71-year-old former school bus driver who shot and killed an East Lake neighbor in 2010 after they argued over a skateboarder using the basketball court.

About two dozen prospective jurors who had heard about the highly publicized case were dismissed Tuesday. Six jurors and two alternates will be chosen Wednesday from the 50 who remain.

Dooley claims self defense in shooting David James, 41, as they wrestled on the ground while James' 8-year-old daughter, Danielle, stood by. She is expected to testify in the trial.
