Jury pool trimmed in Ted Stevens trial

The judge presiding over the trial of Senator Ted Stevens narrowed the jury pool today.  Jury selection is not yet complete – the court expects it to wrap up tomorrow morning.  But today  Judge Emmet Sullivan screened about 45 residents of the District of Columbia, to see if they can be fair and impartial when hearing the case, which charges Senator Stevens with seven felony counts of lying on his financial disclosure statements.
