The jury that will hear the retrial of former Vanderbilt University football player Brandon Vandenburg will be chosen in Memphis, The Tennessean reports. Vandenburg's retrial is scheduled for June 13 in Nashville. Vandenburg and Cory Batey were found guilty of aggravated rape and other charges after a 2015 trial, but a mistrial was declared due to juror misconduct. Their retrials were split due to a medical condition of one of Vandenburg’s attorneys, which resulted in a delay. Jury selection is expected to happen the week before the trial.
