(AP) A second day of jury selection was scheduled in the Justice Department's case against a former BP drilling engineer charged with deleting text messages and voicemails about the company's response to its massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.


Dozens of potential jurors filled a New Orleans courtroom Monday for the start of Kurt Mix's federal trial, which is expected to last up to three weeks.


One by one, U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval Jr. questioned members of the jury pool privately for several hours. He dismissed some of them and ordered the rest to return Tuesday for a second day of jury selection.


Once a jury is selected, the attorneys will deliver their opening statements.
