Mercer County Man Accused of Killing His Ex-Wife Appears in Court


 The man accused of stabbing a woman at a Princeton apartment complex makes his first appearance in court.

William Jessie Seal, 33, is accused of first degree murder in the death of his ex wife Ashley Seal on June 15, 2015.  Seal was dressed in hospital gown during his first court appearance, sitting there emotionless as Circuit Assistant Judge William Sadler  read the charges in front of him. 

The prosecuting attorney asked the judge for no bond to be set. Due to the number of stab wounds that Ashley had, Judge Sadler agreed to a no bond. Seal was transported to Southern Regional Jail.
