AUSTIN EDITION Pitchford jury selection begins
From staff reports
Jury selection is under way this week in Mower District Court in the trial of Tramale D. Pitchford, charged in an Aug. 20, 2000, armed robbery of a convenience store.
Court officials said it could take until Friday to seat a jury for the trial, and that opening statements could be given on Monday.
The prosecution alleged that the 21-year-old Minneapolis man went to Sinclair Marketing Services at 900 N. Main St., Austin, where he demanded money from a clerk while pointing a BB gun at her.
