BAY ST. LOUIS — The trial has begun in the trial of a man accused of killing an 83-year-old Bay St. Louis businessman three years ago.
The Sun Herald reports that jurors this week began hearing opening statements and testimony from several witnesses in the trial of 45-year-old Glen Davis. Davis faces a life sentence without parole if convicted of first-degree murder in the death of Maurice Colly, a prominent Bay St. Louis real estate developer.
Authorities say Colly was killed in March 2012 in his living quarters on the top floor of the apartment complex he owned in Bay St. Louis. His body was found in the trunk of his car in the apartment complex parking lot.
Davis pleaded not guilty to the charge in October 2013.
