CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A jury has been seated in the trial of suspected serial killer Anthony Kirkland.

Eight women and four men will ultimately decide if Kirkland lives or dies.

Attorneys continued to make it clear to potential jurors on Tuesday just how serious it is to be on the jury in this trial.

Two prospective jurors were dismissed Tuesday after being told they wouldn't be able to discuss the case with anyone.

As questioning went on, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters now hopes all the instructions are very clear because the case is too important for all parties involved.

Wednesday, the 12 member jury and the six alternates will visit all four crime scenes of the victims - Kimya Rolison, Mary Jo Newton, Casonya Crawford and Esme Kenney.

Opening statements are expected to begin Thursday morning. The trial is expected to last around three weeks.
