BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. (WFTV) -- Jury selection is underway in the first-degree murder trial of a man accused of killing a Brevard County deputy.

Brandon Bradley, 24, could face the death penalty for allegedly gunning down Deputy Barbara Pill during a traffic stop in 2012.

It could take several days to find 12 jurors and three alternates who can commit to what could be a five-week trial.

Judge Morgan Reinman asked prospective jurors on Monday about potential hardships that might keep them from serving jury duty in the murder trial.

Many of them brought up medical concerns or work conflicts they felt should exclude them from hearing the state's case against Bradley.

The defendant is accused of gunning down Pill during a March 2012 traffic stop.

Bradley's co-defendant, Andria Kerchner, pleaded guilty to her role in the case last month. She accepted a plea deal and was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Kerchner is expected to testify against Bradley as part of her plea deal.
