NEW ORLEANS — The Latest on second trial of suspect who prompted a mistrial last fall after smearing feces on his face (all times local):
A suspect who brought an end to his October murder trial by smuggling excrement into a New Orleans court and rubbing it on his face is back in court, where jury selection has begun anew.
Travis Boys is on trial in the 2015 shooting death of police officer Daryl Holloway.
As jury candidates filed into court Wednesday, Boys was seated at a table with his lawyers. He was dressed in a dark suit, and had his shackled arms and legs under a table where potential jurors couldn't see them.
Opening statements are set for Monday.
