MARIANNA, Fla., July 28 (UPI) -- Jury selection in the murder trial of a Florida man was interrupted when a potential juror said a witness in the case had once shot her, observers said.

As a Jackson County, Florida, was asking potential jurors in the trial of Howard Sullivan if any of them knew potential witness Lionel Crawford, a woman raised her hand and said the man had once shot her but was never prosecuted, The Panama City (Fla.) News Herald reported.

Circuit Judge William Wright excused the juror and allowed her to leave the courtroom, the newspaper said.

Authorities allege Sullivan, 23, of Marianna, Fla., killed or was involved in the killing of Roger Donell Horne, 51, who was slain during a home invasion robbery last year. The News Herald said five people were arrested in the case.
