MALONE, N.Y. (AP) - A trial is under way in a northern New York courtroom where a woman is charged with beating and stabbing her 65-year-old ex-boyfriend to death inside her Adirondack apartment in 2013.

The Press-Republican of Plattsburgh reports (https://bit.ly/161JLZW ) that testimony began Thursday in Franklin County Court in the murder trial of 30-year-old Angela Ball.

Prosecutors say Ball beat Ward Wilbur of Lake Placid with a baseball bat before stabbing him in the chest on Nov. 25, 2013 inside her apartment in the village of Saranac Lake.

Ball’s attorney said in his opening statement that she and Wilbur had been illegally growing marijuana and that she was completely controlled by him.

Testimony is scheduled to resume Friday morning.
