PIERCE COUNTY, Washington (ABC 4 News) - Steve Powell's trial officially begins this Wednesday on May 9 after two days of jury selection in Pierce County, Wash. Steve is charged with 14 counts of voyeurism. He also faces one pornography charge.

Powell is accused of storing pornography on his computer and video taping two neighbor girls through their bathroom window.

Jury selection begins Monday with at least 80 people, but more than a hundred could be summoned for selection because of the heavy media coverage and public bias against Steve.

The chosen twelve jurors will likely hear testimony from more than two dozen people including several West Valley City police officers and possibly from Steven Powell himself.

He's not listed as a witness, but would still have the opportunity to speak according to Anne Bremner who is Chuck and Judy Cox's attorney.

Even though the trial is about whether Steve used devices to record inappropriate images and stored child pornography on his computer; many are asking if the trial could lead to information about Susan Powell's body.

"Every step in this process reduces Steve's options and as those are reduced hopefully it will convince him to tell us where Susan really is," said Chuck.

He knows intimate details about the night Josh took a winter camping trip with his boys, which is the same night Susan disappeared and he was on the phone with Josh during that tumultuous time.

"I'm hoping they'll learn some things about Susan's whereabouts any information that could lead to finding her," said Bremner.

Two girls Steve allegedly video taped bathing in their own bathroom next door will also have an interest in the trial. The girls are now young teens, but to this day they are upset by the allegations.

"It's really for them creepy. You know of course that this happened and even creepier when they learned about Josh and what he did these are there neighbors you know," said Bremner.
