BLOOMFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Trial is this week for a southeast Missouri man accused of killing his son while high on synthetic drugs.

The Poplar Bluff Daily American Republic (https://bit.ly/1Hb5AWm ) reports that jury selection was scheduled for Tuesday, with the trial expected to last through Friday for 43-year-old Charles Goforth of Catron.

Twenty-year-old Patrick Joseph Goforth was fatally shot in May 2012 inside the family home. Another of Charles Goforth’s sons, Josh Goforth, said during a preliminary hearing that his father had been using bath salts for several months and was seeing imaginary people, even occasionally firing shots at the imaginary people.
