Justin Ross Harris faces charges, including murder, and has been in jail since the day his son died. Police say his 22-month-old son Cooper died after spending about seven hours in the vehicle on a hot June day in 2014.
Potential jurors on Tuesday filled out a 17-page questionnaire that included questions about what they know about the highly publicized case. Groups of jurors will be brought in for questioning by the lawyers starting Wednesday.
Jury selection is expected to last at least into next week.
The questionnaire notes the trial could last four to six weeks once opening statements begin.
Harris is a native of Tuscaloosa, Ala.
