An official at East Stroudsburg University is under investigation by the State System of Higher Education. Doctor Isaac Sanders is a Vice President for University Advancement. He has been placed on administrative leave. The school will only say the state is looking into a quote "personnel matter." Jury selection is scheduled to start Thursday for the man accused of killing four people--including a judge--more than three years ago in Atlanta. Former Kutztown University football player Brian Nichols is accused of shooting a judge, federal agent, and two others during a courtroom escape in 2005. Several issues have delayed the trial's start...including a lack of funding, reported escape attempts, and whether Judge James Bodiford can be impartial. The trial is expected to go six days a week... and last months.
