JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The second trial of a Florida man accused of killing a teenager during an argument over loud music outside a Jacksonville convenience store is scheduled to resume.

Jury selection continues Wednesday as attorneys for 47-year-old Michael Dunn argue that intense media coverage has made getting a fair jury impossible.

Circuit Judge Russell Healey has yet to rule on whether to move the case. The Florida Times-Union (https://bit.ly/1pbW09I ) reports more than 60 jurors have been qualified so far.

Prosecutors say Dunn killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Georgia, by firing 10 times into an SUV occupied by four teens.

A previous jury found Dunn guilty of attempted second-degree murder for firing the shots, but deadlocked on the first-degree murder charge.

Dunn faces at least 60 years in prison for the convictions.
