A jury in the criminal trial of Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter is likely to be seated this morning.
On Monday, the defense and prosecuting attorneys came close to seating a jury, but will attempt to finish the work this morning.
Hunter's lawyer, Clyde Bennett, and the special prosecutors in the case questioned at least half of the 60-person jury pool in a long session Monday, but came up short on finding 12 jurors both sides could agree on.
After spending months analyzing the deal, Hamilton County Commissioners still have more questions about an offer to take over the former Mercy Mt. Airy hospital site.
Catholic Health Partners is offering to give the site to the county, which would turn part of the building into a new crime lab.
But before accepting, commissioners want a plan for funding renovations. County administration estimates it will cost $40 million to fit-out a new crime lab or $100 million to completely renovate the entire building.

The acquisition will establish a new banking region for BB&T that encompasses Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati.
