Murder Trial

By  | 

Jury selection enters its third day today in the trial of a Colorado man accused of killing a Massachusetts teenager.

26-year-old Alexander Pring-Wilson is charged with first-degree murder in the April 2003 stabbing death of 18-year-old Michael Colono.

Pring-Wilson first told investigators he'd witnessed a fight between two men and tried to intervene. He later said he'd been attacked, and pulled out his pocketknife in self-defense.

He has pleaded innocent.

The Colorado Springs native and 2000 graduate of Colorado College was studying for his master's degree at Harvard University.

He's the son of two prominent Colorado attorneys.

Jury selection is slated to continue through the week, with opening statements expected on Monday.
