FT. Fort Lauderdale, Florida-The next phase of jury selection for the convicted mass murderer Nikolas Cruz began on Monday morning.

As the parents of two of the victims observed court proceedings, three potential juries were asked specific questions about their feelings about the death penalty.

A future judge pleaded guilty to 17 murders and 17 attempted murders in a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High on February 14, 2018, before deciding the fate of a 23-year-old. Parkland’s school insisted that all the details of the should be considered.

She was detained. The next jury wasn’t.

She was forgiven after saying she believed that the death penalty might be justified in such cases.

Six more juries were expected to be asked questions directly on Monday.

Both lawyers want to know how each person evaluates the worsening and mitigation of the situation surrounding mass shootings.

Nearly 400 judges were selected from the more than 1,600 people screened in the first phase, which began on April 4.

The judgment trial is expected to continue until October, after 12 jury trials and 8 alternative jury trials have been elected. A dozen will have to decide whether Cruz will live or die for his crimes.
