Trial Begins in Soldier Double Murder

The trial is underway for a man accused of murdering two Fort Stewart soldiers. Jury selection began today in the murder trial of John Tolbert, Jr. He's accused of the April 2002 murder of his wife, Sgt. Sauda Tolbert, and Spec. Anthony Waters.

Hinesville police found them dead inside Waters' mobile home. They later arrested Tolbert's estranged husband. Prosecutors from the Atlantic Judicial Circuit are seeking the death penalty.
