Week two of jury selection in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery trial has begun.

The court is sifting through 20 potential jurors at a time.

Lawyers are trying to find impartial jurors, which is difficult, given the high-profile nature of this case. 

At least 23 potential jurors were accepted, but none of them were seated.

25 year-old Arbery, who was black, was shot and killed last year while jogging in a Georgia neighborhood.

Three white men are charged with murder. They say they acted in self-defense because they thought Arbery was a burglar.

Arbery's family says he was targeted because of his race.
