Opening statements could begin Wednesday in the trial of a man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend in Reading.

At least eight jurors have been picked so far for the trial of Donald Williams, who set Maria Serrano on fire in June 2009 in the 800 block of Lincoln Street, police said.

Serrano was flown to the hospital, but she died a few days later.

A judge declared a mistrial for Williams last year because lawyers were unable to pick a jury.
