GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The trial of a 30-year-old man accused in a 2014 fatal shooting has opened in Grand Forks.

WDAZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1MKMSFx ) reports Delvin Shaw is representing himself in the trial that began Tuesday. He’s charged with murder and burglary in the June 2014 death of 24-year-old Jose Lopez, who authorities say was shot three times in his Grand Forks apartment.

Police say Lopez wasn’t the intended target, but that Shaw went to the wrong apartment.

Shaw accused prosecutors of making him “seem like a monster.” He says he has done many things he isn’t proud of, but that “murder’s not one.”

The other suspect in Lopez’s death, 19-year-old Dametrian Welch, agreed to plead guilty in March to a reduced charge of facilitating murder.
