Cairo, Georgia-- Prosecutors in Grady County expect a verdict tomorrow Wednesday in a murder trial.

Investigators say Chadwick Nash shot and killed Leon Williams in October 2004. It happened just after midnight at "Scott's Tasty Chicken" in Cairo.

District Attorney Joe Mulholland says if Nash is convicted, he'll ask that the 33 year old get the death penalty. "That's the mandatory sentence for the charges that were appropriate, and that is murder. So, based on the fact that there was no provocation according to our evidence, that's what we'll be asking for," says Mulholland.

Nash disappeared for several days after the shooting. He finally turned himself into Grady County Sheriff's deputies, who have had him in custody since.
