Jury selection begins in Lil Boosie murder trial

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Downtown Baton Rouge will be packed today with potential jurors, all for one particular trial.  It's jury selection day for Lil Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch. Downtown and many other places were packed over the weekend. Did you get out and take some of it in? From Baton Rouge to New Orleans to Denham Springs, from running to singing to celebrating, there was plenty going on. We'll give you a look if you missed it. Don't forget you can catch our 9Online webcasts three times throughout the day. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route.
