Texas JP Murder Trial Gets Underway

It was a case that shocked and frightened a Texas town almost two years ago: An assistant district attorney was gunned down as he walked into his office. Days later, the district attorney and the D.A.’s wife were shot to death in their home.

As shocking as the crime was the suspect who was eventually arrested … a former justice of the peace who knew all of the victims was taken into custody. Now, Eric Williams’ trial has begun.

ABC’s Jim Ryan in Dallas is watching the proceedings.
