Opening statements made in float trip murder trial
Opening statements were made Tuesday in the second degree murder trial of 59-year-old James Crocker. He is accused of killing 48-year-old Paul Dart Jr. in July. Crocker and some floaters had argued before the shooting. Crocker fired warning shots and then one that hit Dart.
Crocker’s attorney says his client was protecting himself and his property.
The trial is expected to last about a week.
