BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Prosecutors and defense attorneys are considering 11 potential jurors for the murder-for-hire trial of Torrence Hatch, a.k.a. Lil Boosie.
Seven of the 11 jurors were preliminarily chosen Tuesday. They are still being questioned by lawyers and no one has been seated.
The makeup of the eleven jurors include four men and seven women, however, any of the 11 can be dismissed at any time.
A total of 12 jurors and two alternates are required to proceed. A total of 700 people received a summons to appear for jury duty this week.
Hatch faces murder charges in connection with an October 2009 murder-for-hire scheme. The judge is allowing some specific lyrics to be brought up in the trial.
Prosecutors said specific lyrics equal intent. Defense attorneys said it's just a rapper doing his job.
Three specific words are what prosecutors hope will link Torrance Hatch to the killing of Terry Boyd on October 21, 2009. Those words include 187, mirk and cake.
Defense attorneys for Hatch say a jury could be selected sometime this week. Jason Williams, one of Hatch's attorneys, says opening arguments could begin as early as Thursday or Friday.
