He ultimately stuck with those lawyers.
Today, they and the prosecution began choosing a jury.
It was a slow-moving process, with each potential juror answering a series of questions about the death penalty.
If he is convicted, Pritchett could be sentenced to die.

(( Heart disease is America's numbe one killer. But now there are more options for treatment than ever before. Now 32 hundred patients at 36 sites in the U.S. jand Canada will be treated by one of two methods...to see which one works best. Cardiologist Robert O'Rourke is one of two principal investigators.
Group one will undergo and "Interventional" procedure like this angioplasty to open up arteries that are closing down and blocking blood flow. Then they'll be treated agressively wth drugs.
Group two will be monitored closely and treated only with agressive drug therapy with new medications like Zocor...a cholestrerol lowering drug inhibitor and Norvasc...a calcium antagonist. Doctors will use nuclear
medicine as part of the testing..where a radioactive isotope is injected

into the patient, and the image shows whether the blood flow is adequate.
Most big heart studies from the 1970's where conducted before these potent new drugs were available, and most did not include women. That's why a new massive study is needed, to define the best way to treat people with moderate to severe coronary heart disease. It's not just a matter of health. It could be a matter of money. IF WE COULD REDUCE THE NUMBER OF ANGIOPLASTIES BEING DONE BY ONE THIRD, I ESTIMATE WE WOULD SAVE THIS COUNTRY ABOUT TWO BILLION DOLLARS. Dr. O'Rourke says he beleives this new information will show that fewer patients need to be treated as early or as aggressively for their heart problems.))
