Trial Underway in Former Officer Slaying

Jury selection in the murder trial of Joseph Williams continued yesterday, and is expected to end on Thursday. Police say Williams, along with another inmate, strangled Michael Deal in his jail cell in June of 2001.

Deal, a former officer in both Richmond Hill and Thunderbolt, was in jail for failing to pay child support.

If convicted, Williams could be sentenced to death.
