ALFRED, Maine — Jury selection is wrapping up for the murder trial of a brother and sister charged with killing the woman’s husband.

The trial of Darlene George of Old Orchard Beach and Jeffrey Williams of New York is scheduled to start Monday in York County Superior Court in Alfred for the June, 20, 2008, killing of George’s husband, 44-year-old Winston George, at their Old Orchard Beach home.

Police say Winston George was tied up and suffocated. A rum bottle was shoved down his throat.

A third suspect has pleaded guilty to lesser charges and will testify at the trial.

The Portland Press Herald says Darlene George stood to benefit from a $70,000 life insurance policy.

Jury selection began Wednesday.
