Jury Out In Williford

In Raleigh, the evidence is in and the jury is out deliberating, since yesterday afternoon.

If the jury returns a verdict of guilty of 1st degree murder, a sentencing hearing will be held to determine if Jason Williford should receive life without parole or a death sentence for the murder of Kathy Taft.

Williford's counsel put on extensive evidence of his serious mental illness, sexual addiction, and drug addiction. This evidence is relevant to whether Williford had the ability to form the intent to kill that day.
