A man charged in the death of his father is now headed to trial. 30-year-old Neil Green’s trial will begin in December after a year behind bars at the Imperial County Jail. Our television partner KYMA-TV is reporting that Green is charged with the murder of his 62-year-old father Melvin Green.
Green’s lawyers say they will hire a forensic expert.
Witnesses say injuries were noticeable to Melvin Green’s face and his mouth was slightly open. There were also missing teeth and his nose had been split in the middle.
The forensic expert is expected to determine the level of alcohol and will also determine the time of the incident.
