The murder trial of Steve Williams is underway in Russell Circuit Court. Williams is accused of shooting Paul Montgomery to death at Montgomery’s mobile home residence in the Bryan community in December 2006.
Another man, Danny Hill, was convicted in July 2011 of “Facilitation to Murder” and “Tampering with Physical Evidence” for his role in Montgomery’s murder. Hill was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Jury selection began in the Williams case this morning in Russell Circuit Court.
