The judge in the trial of three white men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery has declined to override decisions in jury selection that left just one Black juror on the final panel of 12.

Glenda Hatchett is a local attorney and judge who handled a similar case, that of Philando Castile, and she joined “Morning Edition” to give her analysis of the jury selection process and what it could mean for the upcoming trial.
