Dyleski jury selection starts today

JURY SELECTION SET TO BEGIN IN SCOTT DYLESKI MURDER TRIAL:

For those interested…

Jury selection is scheduled to begin this morning in Martinez in the murder trial of 17-year-old Scott Dyleski of Lafayette.

The teenager is accused of the Oct. 15 killing of 52-year-old Pamela Vitale at the Lafayette home she shared with her husband, lawyer and legal commentator Daniel Horowitz.

On Friday, Contra Costa County Superior Court Judge Barbara Zuniga denied a defense motion to move the murder trial out of the county because of allegedly prejudicial pretrial publicity.

Zuniga ruled that moving the trial would do no good, saying “The nature of the crime will be the same wherever this case is tried.”

Jury selection is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. in Department 2 of the A.F. Bray Building, 1020 Ward St., Martinez.

I wonder how long this will take?

    How long indeed.

    Hello Trench, I haven’t commented in a while. Reading up on this case, I am wondering if there is any hope at all for Scott Dyleski. At the beginning, I was all for going for him to win, but now, my faith is starting to faulter. It doesn’t excuse what he did, if he did infact kill the woman.. (Although, everything is pointing to it) but, he is so young, and to spend his whole life in jail, amy kid could have potential, but, he was unfortunatly pushed head first into the bad light.
    Anyway, I will be following as you know that I do.

    As always,
    Steph.
