Jury selection in the Neal Sweeney murder trial has been halted for the day because Terrico Bethel's attorney was taken to the hospital after collapsing in the courthouse.

The judge said he had no information on Sharon Holmes' condition but has told the jury to come back in the morning in hopes of knowing then, whether she is able to continue.

Sweeney died the next day.
