Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The 12 jurors and four alternated who have been chosen for the Dontae Morris trial will arrive in Tampa today.

They were picked last week in Orlando, and the trial will begin this week.

They are being placed under guard at an unnamed hotel. Morris is charged with killing two Tampa police officers during a traffic stop in 2010.

If Morris is found guilty, the jury could recommend the death penalty. Testimony is expected to start Tuesday morning.
