Trial for man accused of killing wife with boat begins

Jury selection was scheduled to begin Monday in the murder trial of a Harrodsburg, Ky., doctor accused of running over his wife with a pontoon boat.

Dr. Steven Hall, 48, has pleaded not guilty. Isabel Hall, 49, died last year while the couple were celebrating their 21st anniversary with a boating excursion on Herrington Lake in Boyle County.

Hall says he struck his wife by accident with the boat, but state police say five independent witnesses told them the doctor gunned the pontoon in her direction.
