Jurors to start deliberations in Williams slaying

DENVER – Jurors are expected to begin deliberations Wednesday in the trial of Willie Clark, the man charged with first-degree murder in the death of Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams.

Attorneys made their closing statements late Tuesday afternoon.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Timothy Twining says Clark flew into a murderous rage after a confrontation and later told friends he fired the fatal shots.

Clark’s attorney, Abraham Hutt, says Clark is a scapegoat and is being framed by associates.

Williams and some friends were in a limousine when he was shot on New Year’s Day 2007. They had just left a nightclub where prosecutors say Williams’ group got into an altercation with a group that included Clark, a suspected gang member.
