Jury Selection Under Way in Wilson Trial

The death penalty case of a Dothan man goes before a jury this week.

23-year-old David Phillip Wilson faces a capital murder charge.

He's accused of the April 2004 beating and strangulation death of 64-year-old Dewey Walker.

Walker's body was found in his home on Shields Court.

Investigators say Walker lived alone and had been dead for nearly a week.

Prosecutors will try to prove that Wilson committed the murder so he could steal Walker's van and an expensive sound system in it.

Jury selection in the case is scheduled to begin Monday at the Houston County Courthouse.
