Final Suspect In 2012 Salisbury Murder Goes To Trial

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - As the final suspect in the murder of a Salisbury man goes to trial this week,
Monday was day one, and the biggest question to be answered in court appears to be "to what degree was Gerard Williams Junior involved in last fall's murder of Andres Aguilera."

Gerard Williams Junior faces first and second degree murder charges, along with a number of other charges, in relation to the shooting death of 23 year-old Andres Aguilera, and the attempted murder of then 16 year-old Edgar Alvarado.

In opening statements, both the defense and state prosecutors agreed Williams was present, and did in fact hit Alvarado on the head with a loaded handgun that night.

The State argues Williams was a willing participant in the crime and was involved in the planning process, but the Defense alleges he was intimidated into participating by another man, Deyamah Fisher, who pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and firearm use in a felony or violent crime in May.

Witnesses called today included Aguilera's fiance, and the mother of his two children, as well as his sister, and police officers who responded to the scene.

The trial of Gerard Williams Junior resumes Tuesday morning.
