FARMINGTON, N.M. (KRQE) - The murder trial of an Arizona man accused of beating a Farmington man to death is now underway.
Opening statements began Monday in the trial of Donovan King.
King, 24, and 25-year-old Justin Mark are accused of breaking into Kevin Lossiah's apartment in 2011 and beating him to death with a rock and a stick, then stealing his wallet and cell phone.
The Supreme Court recently ruled that some of King's incriminating statements made during his initial interrogation cant' be used during trial.
King says he was drunk and he had told officers he did not want to talk, but they continued to question him.
Mark was found guilty of first-degree murder back in November and is serving a life sentence.
