NEW ROADS, La (WVLA)--The first day of the Larry Snyder murder trial started in Pointe Coupee Tuesday morning.
The jury was seated earlier than expected. In opening statements, prosecutors painted Snyder as a cold-blooded murderer, but the defense asked the jury to stick to the facts of the case.
Snyder is accused of kidnapping and murdering his girlfriend, Davina Ann Champman back in July 2009.
The trial is expected to wrap up by Friday.
