DAUPHIN COUNTY -- Jury selection will continue Wednesday in Dauphin County for trial of former East Pittsburgh officer.

The jury selection for a high profile criminal homicide case out of Pittsburgh is being selected in Dauphin County. Jury selection began Tuesday morning for the trial of a former East Pittsburgh officer accused of shooting and killing an unarmed black teen.

The final jury members and alternates will be chosen Wednesday.

Michael Rosfeld, a former East Pittsburgh officer is being charged with criminal homicide, accused of shooting and killing 17-year-old Antwon Rose in June 2018.
