Walker Trial

Opening arguments are expected to begin today in the case of an elderly Houston County woman who was killed during a home invasion robbery.

James Earl Walker could get the death penalty if he's convicted.

He's charged with capital murder in the shooting death of 87-year-old Bessie Lee Thweet of Wicksburg.

A co-defendant has already been convicted and sentenced to die.

Jury selection for Walker's trial should wrap up this morning.

Walker is being held without bond in the Houston County Jail.
