Trial Begins in Philly Officer's 1966 Shooting

May 11, 2010  | 

Opening arguments are scheduled for next week in the trial of 73-year-old William Barnes, who is accused of causing the death of Officer Walter Barclay, who died 41 years after the shooting, the Inquirer reports.

Barnes shot Barclay, who found him burglarizing a beauty parlor. Barnes was convicted of attempted murder for the shooting and served 26 years. From the report:

The murder charge was brought against Barnes after Barclay, paralyzed from the waist down by the shooting, died of a urinary-tract infection at 64. The central question will be whether the 1966 shooting can be directly linked to Barclay's death.
