A jury in the case of the Mangilao machete attack will be selected on Wednesday out of a pool of 160 potential jurors.
As the case has been highly publicized in the media, Superior Court Judge Vernon Perez acknowledges that it could be challenging but he is hopeful that an impartial jury can be formed in one day.
Ten days is how much time the trial is anticipated to take in the case involving Emanuel Resalap and Jordan Rachulap, the two young men who are accused of attacking motorists in Mangilao with machetes earlier this year.
The government intends to call 20 witnesses and 8 victims to the stand to testify in the case.
At least three witnesses will be called to the stand on Thursday after both parties make their opening statements.
Prosecutor Shawn Brown said that during trial, photos, videos, and the 911 call will be shared with jurors who will weigh the evidence before coming to a verdict.
