Anne Arundel man faces third trial for 2007 killing
A Brooklyn Park man is on trial for the third time in a 2007 killing after one mistrial and one hung jury.
Twenty-three-year-old Antonio Moore is charged with first-degree murder in the April 2007 shooting death of 21-year-old Michael Francis.
This trial is different from the first two because prosecutors are finally able to tell the jury where they believe Moore buried Francis' body.
Skeletal remains were found in April 2008 near the home of Moore's aunt in Baltimore. A scientist reviewing a missing person's database noticed several similarities between the skeleton and Francis and informed Anne Arundel County police in June 2009.
Testimony began Thursday, and the trial is expected to last through next week.
