CLEARWATER, Fla.  — Jury selection has begun in the trial of an Orlando woman charged with killing her daughter.

The trial of 25-year-old Casey Anthony will take place in Orlando, but jurors are being selected at a courthouse about 100 miles away because of intense media coverage. The first panel of potential jurors met with the judge and attorneys Monday morning in Clearwater.

Chief Judge Belvin Perry hopes to have 20 jurors — including eight alternates — in place by the end of the week. Potential jurors will be called up individually, undergo two rounds of questioning and be asked if they could recommend the death penalty for Anthony.

The lights inside the courtroom when out briefly while Perry read the indictment.
