Jury Selection Reaches Day 4 In Jamestown Man’s Murder Trial

MAYVILLE – Day three of jury selection in the murder trial for Jamestown man David Waggoner netted zero sworn-in jurors, a Chautauqua County Court Clerk told WNYNewsNow Friday morning. 

The clerk said that 64 jurors from Thursday’s group returned this morning and have resumed the selection. A total of 12 jurors, plus alternate(s), are needed to serve. Six jurors have been sworn in, as of publish time.







Waggoner is charged with second-degree murder in the death of William J. Michishima. Jamestown Police said that Waggoner allegedly shot and killed Michishima with a single gunshot wound to the head at 114 Livingston Ave. in Jamestown last July.

Waggoner was indicted in Chautauqua County Court last August. He remains in Chautauqua County Jail on $1 million bail.







Arguments and opening statements will begin once jury selection is completed. Chautauqua County District Attorney Patrick Swanson is the prosecutor, while Public Defender Ned Barone is representing Waggoner.
