The defense in the Naeem Williams murder case is expected to begin calling witnesses in federal court Tuesday.

Williams is on trial for the alleged murder of his 5-year-old daughter in 2005.

He could face the death penalty, even tough there’s no capital punishment in Hawaii.

His wife, Delilha Williams has entered a guilty plea and will testify against her husband at some point during the trial.
She’s already been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The witness list is long and the trial is expected to take weeks.

Defense attorneys say Williams is expected to testify.
