Jury selection continued late into Monday afternoon for the trial of Wesley Brown.

The State’s Attorney Office charged the 16-year-old with vehicular manslaughter. Boca Raton police said Brown crashed into and killed Wendy Harris-Aceves in 2015.

Lawyers hope to whittle down a jury from a pool of 50.

Brown's trial could last until Thursday.
