WEBSTER, S.D. (AP) - Testimony is beginning this week in the trial of a man accused of fatally shooting another man in his Roslyn home two years ago.

A jury was selected last week to hear the case of 46-year-old Jason Lewandowski, who faces murder and other charges in the death of 33-year-old Jeremy Hendrickson in late 2015.

Defense attorney Tom Sannes tells the American News that Lewandowski maintains his innocence and will not mount an insanity defense.

The trial comes after a judge last month declined to accept a plea deal in which Lewandowski would have pleaded guilty to manslaughter. It’s scheduled to run through Oct. 20.
