Jury Selection Continues For Wheatland Man

Greeley, Colorado – Jury selection has resumed this morning in the attempted-murder trial of a former University of Northern
Colorado punter.
Mitch Cozad of Wheatland, Wyoming is also charged with
second-degree assault in an attack last September on Rafael
Mendoza.
He was stabbed in his kicking leg. Police have said they believe
Cozad stabbed Mendoza in an attempt to get his job as the starting
kicker.
So many questionnaires had to be printed for potential jurors
that a copy machine overheated yesterday. Workers had to let the
machine rest before printing out more questionnaires.
Jurors are being questioned behind closed doors after filling
out the paperwork.
Opening arguments could be presented as early as this
afternoon.
