District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler says he's concerned for the future jurors.

"I've got a lot of empathy and concern for them. I worry about how people are being impacted now and ultimately when we get a jury, I'm going to be worried about the jurors who are providing that service," said Steve Kunzweiler.

Michael Bever could spend life in prison without parole if convicted.
