A jury of 12 and six alternates has been selected in the federal trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, local news channel WCVB-TV reports.

The panel, made up of eight men and ten women, was selected on Tuesday.

Tamerlan was killed during a gunfight with police several days later while Dzhokhar was taken into custody and faces 30 federal counts.

Opening statements are expected to begin on Wednesday.
