WAYNESBORO, Va. (AP) — A published report says court records identify the defendant who obtained a jury pool list for the trial of six people charged in the slaying of a reserve police officer.
The incident prompted a judge to declare a mistrial for all six defendants this week.
Transcripts obtained by The News-Virginian and The Daily Progress show Travis Bell obtained the list. The News-Virginian says the transcripts are of a May 7 meeting between U.S. District Judge Glen Conrad and lawyers for both sides.
The newspaper says the transcripts also show that Bell and co-defendant Gert Wright recruited gang members while in jail.
Bell and three co-defendants are charged with killing 45-year-old Kevin Quick in 2014. Wright and a sixth co-defendant are charged with racketeering and obstruction of justice.
