    Attorneys in McKinney are faced with a tough task: finding 12 jurors and two alternates who know nothing about the capital murder trial of Terrance Black.
    He's accused of the beating death of former Wichita Falls resident Susan Loper in Plano in April of last year.
    Plano police found a bloody crime scene at the country club where she worked, and found her body in a field off the North  Dallas Tollway.
    Nearly 150 potential jurors were called to the McKinney courthouse this morning to go through the jury selection process for the trial.
    If the judge finds an impartial jury can not be seated, he will reconsider a defense motion to move the trial.
    Black's defense team sought a change of venue in the case because they say the large amount of publicity would deny black a fair trial.   
    If a jury is selected, Black's trial will begin Monday.
