John Goodman jury to come from Tampa area

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The judge in the John Goodman retrial said Monday morning that the jury pool will come from Hillsborough County.

Goodman will have to pay the cost for the deputies guarding him, including travel and meals.

In his order the judge said it will take two to three days to pick the jury next week, and four deputies will be needed to watch Goodman 24 hours a day.

At Monday's hearing, lawyers argued over whether a blood sample taken from Goodman can be used as evidence in his upcoming DUI manslaughter retrial.

The sample was taken the night police say he was driving drunk and killed Scott Wilson in 2010. Goodman's lawyers question how the blood was taken and tested.
