CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - More potential jurors in the Colorado theater shooting trial have been released for reasons ranging from language barriers or residency issues, or because they have a relative connected to the case.

The Aurora Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/15PjM98 ) that unlike in previous sessions, attorneys didn’t announce a list at the end of the day Tuesday of potential jurors they agreed should be released. Earlier in the day, 70 potential jurors were released, bringing the total to 454.

Judge Carlos Samour said the repetitive, daily process of choosing a jury is “starting to feel a little bit like Groundhog Day.”

About 9,000 possible jurors were initially summoned in the case. The jury will determine if James Holmes was sane during the 2012 attack that killed 12 people and injured 70.
