Evans Murder Trial

Testimony continues in the murder trial of a convicted sex offender at the Houston County Courthouse.

Thirty-three-year-old Tony Evans is charged in the stabbing death of a Dothan woman.

Nacole Smith was killed in 1998. But Evans wasn't charged in the case until three years ago.

At the time, he was in prison for burglary, but a routine DNA test linked him to the murder.

Evans has already been sentenced to life without parole for the rape and sexual abuse of a 14-year-old girl.

The crimes were committed while he was released on bond for the murder of Smith.

Evans is now being held without bond.

Jury selection in the murder trial began Monday.
