The process of finding a jury for the trial of Ahmaud Arbery's killing has taken close to two weeks. And court officials say they're seeing low turnout among the people summoned for jury duty. 

Six hundred people were supposed to show up for the first day, but only 283 actually came. 

The court summoned another 400 people this week. 

About half of them were no-shows. 

Three men faces charges in Ahmaud Arbery's death.
