The latest question about a nearly two-year-old murder case in Putnam County focuses on the jury. The judge in Clifford Anderson Jr.’s murder trial says he plans to call 300 people to try and seat a jury. If both sides can’t agree on a jury, the judge says he may move the case to Tazewell County. Investigators say Anderson beat his sister in law, Deborah Dewey, to death in August of 2016 over what they say was a gambling debt.
