Witness lists for both the York County District Attorney’s office and defendant Mark Strong have now been posted on the state’s website for high-profile cases (an earlier version of the prosecution’s list, with 30 people on it, was posted earlier this month — since then, the list has approximately doubled in size).

The Portland Press Herald’s appeal of Justice Nancy Mills’ decision to keep interviews with prospective jurors closed to the public and media could delay jury selection even longer.
