Jury begins deliberations in Williams’ slaying

DENVER – Jurors are deliberating the case against a man accused of firing the shots that killed Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams.

Jurors got the case against Willie Clark late Tuesday and began deliberating Wednesday morning.

Clark is charged with first-degree murder in the New Year’s Day 2007 shooting.

In closing statements Tuesday, prosecutors said Clark went into a murderous rage after a confrontation at a nightclub, and that he later told friends he fired the fatal shots.

Defense attorneys say Clark wasn’t in a vehicle that pulled up besides Williams’ rented limousine when someone inside fired the shots.

They say Clark is being made a scapegoat.
