After cold case cracked, murder trial starts for man accused

ROCKFORD (WREX) -

For nearly seven years, a Rockford family waited to see their daughter's murderer caught.

Authorities made an arrest in 2015, and this week, the man accused stands trial.

Chaundra Davis went missing in November 2008. Police say she was strangled, then her body was thrown in the Rock River.

Years later, investigators arrested her former boyfriend James Williams.

He's charged with three counts of first degree murder with three counts of first degree murder and one count concealment of a homicide. Jury selection started today in his murder trial.

13 News will be in court this week as opening statements get underway.
