Capital Murder Defendant Not Getting Enough Sleep

(Wauseon, OH) The schedule of James Worley's capital murder trial is preventing him from getting enough sleep.  

Prior to resuming jury selection Thursday, Worley told the judge that with court not wrapping up until well into the evening, he's not getting into bed at CCNO until late.  He said he's woken up by the staff there at 3 o'clock in the morning to take medication before getting up two hours later for breakfast. 

Worley is accused of kidnapping and killing 20-year-old Sierah Joughin in July of 2016. He faces the death penalty if convicted.

The jury pool is now down to just over 50 people with a scheduled day off Friday. Court officials hope to have jury selection wrapped up Monday in order to begin opening arguments. That jury will be sequestered throughout testimony in the case.
