READING, Pa. (AP) — Jury selection is under way for a second time in the murder trial of a man accused of setting his ex-girlfriend on fire in her Reading home.
Donald Williams is accused of killing 49-year-old Maria Serrano in June 2009.
Investigators say the 34-year-old Philadelphia man raped and stabbed Serrano before dumping gasoline on her and setting her on fire. She died about six weeks later.
WFMZ-TV (http://bit.ly/19fLk3f) reports Tuesday that it's the second attempt to try Williams for the murder. The first attempt ended in a mistrial last summer, when a judge determined that a jury could not be chosen.
Williams had previously been convicted of third-degree murder in a 1994 slaying and was paroled in 2008.
