Nearly two years after the brutal homicide of our beloved colleague Ben Bradley, the murder trial of the young man accused of killing him, Jose Fructuoso, has finally begun. The trial is being held at the Superior Court, Criminal Courts Building in downtown Los Angeles. Opening arguments began yesterday.
The prosecution is led by LA District Attorney Mario Haydar. Official charges against Fructuoso are felony murder and burglary.
The trial is expected to take approximately two weeks. More updates soon.
