Justin Barkley trial: Jury selected, but trial at a standstill

Following over 15 collective hours of vetting over the course of three days, the jury is finally seated for the murder trial Dryden resident Justin Barkley.

With that out of the way, the trial, which is expected to take upwards of three weeks, is at a standstill. Despite the trial being listed on the court calendar through Friday this week, Tompkins County Judge John Rowley dismissed the jury today until next week, citing "unexpected issues" for the delay.

"One-hundred percent honest," Tompkins County District Attorney Matthew Van Houten said following the court's dismissal, "We don't know the next time we're going to be in court."
