The trial's due to start today of two teenagers accused of murdering a man at a flat in Northfleet earlier this year.
Sixteen jurors, four of them reserves, were selected at Maidstone Crown Court yesterday, and the final 12 will be sworn in later today
Tommy Presley, 18, of Bankside, Northfleet, and a 17-year-old youth, from Gravesend, who cannot be identified, deny murdering 29-year-old James Green, who suffered fatal knife wounds at a flat in Fishermen’s Hill on June 21.
Judge Jeremy Carey disqualified any potential jurors living within the DA11 postcode and any who might have a close relationship with serving police officers based at the North Kent stations of Ebbsfleet and Gillingham.
The judge said there would be a visit to the scene of the alleged crime this afternoon.
The trial is expected to last three to four weeks.
