Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — 23-year-old Willie Nesler is on trial for allegedly kicking to death, 45-year-old David Davis in a dispute over some tools.

Due to the publicity of the trial and the violent nature of the defendant the Tuolumne County Superior Court assigned Nesler a personal bailiff and instructed 5 more deputies to stand close by.

The trial, which began with jury selection Wednesday is scheduled to continue Monday and is expected to last at least another week.

Nesler is the son of Ellie Nesler who gained national attention when she shot and killed a man believed to be her son´s molester in a Jamestown courtroom.
