Jury selection underway after mistrial in murder of city council woman's nephew

- Jury selection is underway again for the three men accused of killing Atlanta mayoral candidate and city council member, Keisha Lance Bottom's nephew.

A judge declared a mistrial in August after two jurors admitted they conducted their own investigations into Darrius Bottoms' murder.

One juror asked a police officer about fingerprint evidence.

The other confessed to driving by the scene of the crime.

Police said the three mistook Bottoms' for a rival gang member when they shot him in southwest Atlanta in 2014.
