Jury selection is complete and opening statements are scheduled for this morning in the murder trial of Scott Doll.
The jury of nine women and three men will hear the testimony and weigh the evidence in the case against the 46-year-old Doll, who is charged with murder in the bludgeoning death of Joseph Benaquist.
District Attorney Lawrence Friedman will deliver his opening statement first then defense attorney Paul Cambria will address the jury.
Courtroom observers predict the trial could last two to three weeks.
The verdict is guilty for a Livingston County man charged with attempting to lure whom he thought was a 15-year-old Batavia into an illicit act.
46-year-old Dalton Wilke of Conesus was found guilty yesterday on federal charges of Enticement and possession of Child Pornography.
Wilke was arrested in Batavia two years ago after Batavia Police detective Todd Crossett, posing on-line as a 15-year-old boy, set up a meeting with Wilke. But, there was no boy waiting for Wilke, only the police.
When sentenced, Wilke faces up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000.
The Genesee County Nursing Home will continue to operate as usual even after the retirement next week of its administrator.
The full legislature last night agreed to a contract with a Buffalo firm to step in and manage the facility and provide the required on site administrator.
Insource Heathcare Solutions of Buffalo will be paid $11,000 a month for the service.
The county chose to hire a firm to manage the home rather than hire a new administrator, since a study is underway that will help determine the future ownership of the facility.
80-percent of Genesee County residents have turned in their census forms on their own.
But that leaves 20 percent of us who have not responded. Now, hired census takers are now pounding the pavement throughout the county in an effort to count everyone.
Most people who will receive a personal visit are those who use P.O. boxes.
Offiicals suggest that residents ask for ID from anyone posing as a census taker.
