separate trials of persons jointly indicted.
Persons indicted and tried jointly, for a felony, shall be

thereof, and only such as they all agree upon shall be stricken
therefrom; and if they cannot agree upon the names to be so
stricken off, the prosecuting attorney shall strike therefrom a
sufficient number of names to reduce the panel to twelve. If
