Lawyers in the murder trial of a Harvard graduate student from Colorado Springs gave two versions of what led to the death of a teenager.
Alexander Pring-Wilson is accused of stabbing 18-year-old Michael Colono in Cambridge Massachusetts last year.
On Monday morning, defense attorney Rick Levinson told the jury that Pring-Wilson was walking home one night when he heard a man in a car call out to him. Levinson said Pring-Wilson thought the man was asking for directions and walked to the car, where he was beaten by two men. Levinson said his client drew his knife in self-defense.
But prosecutor Adrienne Lynch says Pring-Wilson approached the car with his knife already drawn after someone in the car derided him for appearing drunk.
The trial is continuing.
