Trial In Death of Raymond Man May End Soon

BATESVILLE, MS -- The family of a Raymond, Nebraska, man gunned down two years ago in Mississippi while picking his grandson up from college in Florida, could know very soon if the man accused of the murder will spend the rest of his life in prison.  James Willie is accused of killing Tom Schlender in his vehicle on Interstate 55 in May of 2012.  The case could go to the jury soon.  At Monday's trial, the prosecution called law enforcement officials and crime scene investigators to exhibit shell casings and the weapon Willie allegedly used in the killing.  Members of Schlender's family made the 770 mile road trip to the Mississippi courthouse and were at yesterday's hearing.
