Williams back on trial

READING, Pa. -

Jury selection is under way for a second time in the trial of a man accused of setting a woman on fire in Reading.

Donald Williams is accused of killing 49 year old Maria Serrano in June of 2009.

Police say Williams broke into Serrano's home in the 800 block of Lincoln Street, poured gasoline on her and set her on fire.

Serrano died about a month and a half later.

This is the second attempt to try Williams for the murder.

The first attempt ended in a mistrial last Summer because a jury could not be chosen.
