Murder trial starts for Waterloo man

Posted: Updated:

Jury selection has begun for the trial of a 28-year-old man accused of fatally shooting an acquaintance in Waterloo.

Authorities say testimony could begin later Wednesday against Roderick Ward Jr.

He has been charged with murder.

Police say Ward used a shotgun to kill Gary Wilson, 27, outside Ward's home on Aug. 2, 2014.

The two had argued moments before the shooting.

Court records say Ward followed Wilson outside Ward's house and then shot him several times.
