Dontae Morris jury will come from Orlando

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Jurors for Dontae Morris' first murder trial will come from Orlando.

Morris is accused of shooting two Tampa police officers. He's going to trial for another murder, accused of shooting Rodney Jones to death outside the Cotton Club in Tampa.

That trial was set to begin last month, but some of the jurors were caught talking about the case, so the judge threw out the entire jury.

The judge has not said whether the trial will be held in Orlando.
