Jury selection begins for second Lake Boyz trial


Jury selection began for a second trial involving suspected Lake Boyz gang members Tuesday morning.

Tommy Williams is on trial alone.

Williams is one of the 23 suspected Lake Boyz members in Fort Myers.

In August, the first four accused Lake Boyz members to go to trial were acquitted on racketeering charges.

Jury selection for Williams is expected to extend into Wednesday.
