The Christopher Deedy murder trial could begin this week, but there is still some issues to iron out.
Judge Karen Ahn ruled Monday that a medical expert for the defense cannot specifically say that victim Kollin Elderts had cocaine in his system. They can say that cocaethylene was found in his eye.
The city prosecutor's office is asking the judge to reconsider the decision, arguing that the ruling is too confusing for jurors.
Meanwhile, the final phase of jury selection begins Tuesday.
The court hopes to seat a jury of 12 after sifting through a pool of some 600 people.
If that is completed in the next few days, opening statements could happen Thursday or Friday.
