CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Jury selection in the first-degree murder trial of Lee Muldoon, 25, of Coggon, is moving slowly in Linn County District Court.

Tyler Johnston, Muldoon’s public defender, just told the judge he had another hour’s worth of questions for the prospective jurors.

Judge Bergan said the two just dismissed will be replaced and asked individual questions outside the rest of the jury panel and then she will have a certain number return Wednesday to finish jury selection.

Muldoon is accused of killing his girlfriend’s daughter Skylar Inman, 2, July 11, 2008, in Coggon. Skylar died from blunt force injuries.

Muldoon claims he is innocent in her death.
