Jury selection in the trial of Sergio Correa, charged in the murders of three members of the Lindquist family in Griswold in 2017, has been scheduled after more than a year of pandemic-related delays, with attorneys set to begin interviewing prospective jurors on June 22.

The high-profile case has been at a relative standstill since March 2020, when jury trials were suspended in the state because of the COVID-19 pandemic and just days before Correa's trial was scheduled to start.

Judge Hillary B. Strackbein said earlier this month that she expects the selection in Correa's case will take a long time, with each attorney having a significant number of peremptory challenges — available objections to proposed jurors.

Joseph Lopez, a public defender representing Correa, said selecting a jury likely will take several weeks.
