Alternate Jurors Picked For O.J. Trial

Attorneys in the O.J. Simpson wrongful death trial picked a panel of eight alternates Monday that, like the regular jury, has only one black member.

The alternates include five whites, one black, one Asian and one Hispanic. The jury, sworn in last week, includes nine whites, one black, one Hispanic and one man who is half black-half Asian.

Opening statements were scheduled to begin Wednesday with both the jury and the alternates in the courtroom.
