NORTHAMPTON - The court was on the cusp of picking a jury in the Ryan Welch murder trial Monday, selecting 15 of 16 projected jurors from a jury pool of more than 90. Judge Daniel Ford and the lawyers in the case nearly achieved their goal in a single day, but fell one juror short as they seated eight women and seven men. Although the jury will be culled to 12 when it comes time to deliberate, the court usually picks additional jurors for long trials in the event that a juror falls sick or has to leave for some other reason.
