For a detailed summary of the prosecution's arguments, please see the "Remarks" screen for h96.1.1436. First day of the trial of Burton W. Abbott, accused of the kidnapping and murder of 14 year-old Stephanie Bryan. From Nov. 7 until Nov. 15, the trial was occupied with selection of the jury. This negative evidently shows the pool of prospective jurors. A group of men and women sit on folding chairs in a large room. In front of them is a folding table, with lawyer-types sitting at it.
