Gillette Murder Trial Underway
GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — The first-degree murder trial for a man charged in the Thanksgiving Day 2013 shooting death of another man is finally set to begin.
The Gillette News Record reports (http://bit.ly/1ggEQdJ ) that the trial for 22-year-old Todd Michael Sindelar begins Monday. The trial had been postponed and continued several times due to new evidence in the case.
Sindelar is accused of shooting and killing 25-year-old Matthew Boyer on Nov. 28, 2013 at Boyer's home. Boyer was shot once in the abdomen and once in the chest.
Boyer's girlfriend told investigators the men had been in a dispute about rent.
Sindelar fled Gillette after the shooting, leading police on a 200-mile chase. He was arrested in South Dakota.
He faces life in prison without parole if convicted.
