SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Shreveport police Officer Thomas LaValley's accused killer now is set for trial.
The proceedings against Grover Cannon are scheduled to start Thursday morning in Caddo District Court.
Twelve jurors and four alternates have been impaneled to hear the case.
Those men and women will be bussed to Shreveport on Wednesday.
If all goes as planned, the death penalty case against Cannon will get underway at 9 a.m. the next day.
The jury pool numbered more than 500 when the selection process began Oct. 17 in Baton Rouge.
Jury selection was halted three weeks into Cannon’s second trial in March.
The Louisiana Supreme Court upheld a defense claim that the jury selection was unfair because people ages 18-26 were excluded from the jury pool.
LaValley was killed while responding to a call in 2015 in Shreveport’s Queensborough neighborhood.
