Watch live as opening statements are expected in Alec Baldwin’s trial on Wednesday, 10 July, over the fatal shooting on the set of the movie Rust.

In October 2021, a prop gun the actor, 66, was holding went off, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.

Mr Baldwin, 66, says he did not pull the trigger on the firearm and did not know it contained a live round, claiming it fired accidentally.

He is charged with a single felony count of involuntary manslaughter and faces up to 18 months in prison if convicted.

The trial comes three months after Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to the maximum penalty of 18 months in prison.

On Tuesday, prosecutors and defence attorneys selected 16 jurors - 11 women and five men.

Four jurors will be deemed alternates while the other 12 deliberate once they get the case.
