INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The trial for an Indianapolis man accused in the death of his 6-week-old son is underway.

Willie Wilson has pleaded not guilty. He’s charged in connection with the death of his infant son, Delano.

In August 2014, Wilson called 911 and reported that strangers abducted the baby. The baby’s body was never found during a search, but authorities claim there’s evidence against Wilson. They allege Wilson killed the child and then lied to cover it up.

Both sides delivered opening statements Tuesday. The trial is expected to last a week.

Prosecutors plan to call over 30 witnesses. The defense doesn’t have plans to call witnesses, but Wilson could testify in his own defense.
