BRISTOL, Va. (WJHL) — Following days of deliberation, prosecutors and attorneys narrowed down a 92-person jury panel in the murder case involving a Bristol, Virginia police officer.
On Tuesday night shortly before 6 p.m., a jury was selected to decide the verdict in Officer Johnathan Brown’s case, who is accused of shooting and killing Jonathen Kohler in March 2021.
