Capital murder trial to start in Fordyce death

This article was published September 7, 2008 at 3:30 p.m.

— Jury selection will begin Monday in the capital murder trial of a former Fordyce police chief accused of shooting his Sunday school teacher wife to death and making it look like a suicide last year.

Lawyers for Paul Douglas Gill had requested the trial be moved from Dallas County over the publicity surrounding the March 2007 death of Sandra Kaye Gill, 54. The trial was moved to Union County, where he could be sentenced to life in prison or death if convicted.

Fordyce Mayor William Lyon had sent a letter last year to prosecutors asking for a rare jury investigation into Sandra Gill's death. Police found Gill dead from a gunshot wound to her head and a .38-caliber revolver beside her body in her Fordyce home March 22, 2007.
