Trial begins today for man accused of shooting and killing his wife's boss
BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- The trial of a man charged with the fatal shooting of a Meridian attorney in a drug store parking lot is set to begin.
The Idaho Statesman reports jury selection begins Tuesday in the trial of Robert Hall, who is charged with first-degree murder in the March 11 death of 30-year-old Emmett Corrigan.
The Ada County jury will have to decide whether the 42-year-old Hall shot and killed Corrigan with premeditation and purpose because he suspected that Corrigan and his wife were having an affair.
Hall has told police he wasn't sure how Corrigan was shot and that his gun fell during a struggle with the lawyer.
Hall faces up to life in prison if convicted.
The trial is expected to last about a month.
