Testimony is underway in the trial of the man accused of gunning down St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Sgt. Gary Morales.

Eriese Tisdale faces the death penalty if he is convicted.

Tisdale admitted to shooting the father of two to death during a traffic stop in February 2013 but claimed he fired in self-defense.

It took attorneys from both sides more than a week to seat a panel of 12 jurors and two alternates.

CBS 12 reports one juror dismissed from the pool said she doesn’t believe an impartial jury can be seated.

The woman works for a local law enforcement agency and asked not to be identified.
