Jury selection for the trial will officially begin on April 18.

William Marcius Wilson is accused of murder for what his lawyers say was a classic Stand Your Ground case of self-defense. The judge issued a gag order and continued a preliminary hearing over COVID-19 concerns.

William Marcus Wilson should be held to the same legal standards as white defendants who cite Georgia's Stand Your Ground laws, defense attorneys said in the case of a Black driver killing a white teen in a truck chasing him.
