A jury of nine women and five men has been selected in the retrial of a former Vanderbilt football player charged in an on-campus rape.
The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1ZCDzOH) reports that the jury, including two alternates, was chosen Thursday in the retrial of Brandon Vandenburg. Jury selection started Wednesday.
Vandenburg's retrial is scheduled to begin Monday in Nashville.
The jury had to be selected in Memphis because of media attention surrounding the case. Jurors will be sequestered in Nashville for the trial.
Vandenburg is one of four former players charged in the rape of an unconscious student. He and former player Cory Batey were tried and convicted last year, but the verdicts were thrown out after lawyers discovered the jury foreman had been a victim of statutory rape.
