Jury seated for doctor's murder trial

After two days of interviews, a jury has been seated for the murder trial of a central Kentucky doctor.

Opening statements in Doctor Steven Hall's trial began late Tuesday morning in Boyle County.

Prosecutors say Hall intentionally hit his wife, Isabel, with a pontoon boat on Herrington Lake last year, killing her.

Hall claims it was just an accident.

Once opening statements have finished, the prosecution will begin presenting its case.

Prosecutors say they plan to call 20 witnesses to the stand.

If convicted, Hall could be sentenced to life in prison.

He is not eligible for the death penalty.
