Jury selection continued Wednesday in the trial of Kevin Underwood.

About 140 prospective jurors reported to Cleveland County District Court Tuesday. The potential jurors are being questioned in small groups to determine if they have heard details about the case before and how they feel about those details. 

Judge Candace Blalock has warned potential jurors to avoid media reports about the case and to be as free as possible from bias, prejudice and sympathy.

Kevin Underwood is accused of killing 10-year-old Jamie Bolin two years ago in Purcell, Oklahoma. The trial was moved from Purcell to Norman because of pre-trial publicity.
