Tuesday begins the long-awaited trial in the Dr. Teresa Sievers murder case.

Dr. Sievers, 46 was a holistic doctor who was beaten to death with a hammer in her home after returning from vacation.

Her husband, Mark Sievers, is accused of orchestrating her murder with the help of Jimmy Rodgers, who is suspected of carrying it out.

Judge Bruce Kyle and both the defense and prosecution are looking to filter out anyone who’s already heard about the case – a difficult task.

And after learning the first-degree murder trial of Rodgers could last five weeks, about 20 people were sent home. Some of them had planned vacations, others said it would be financially difficult for them to take off work.
