Grover Cannon is accused of the ambush shooting death of Officer Thomas LaValley. The 29-year-old suspect is charged with first-degree murder.

Once the jury is seated, the trial itself will take place in Shreveport with the state saying it will seek the death penalty if Cannon is convicted as charged.
