EL CENTRO, Calif. – The trial of a man accused of allegedly beating his father to death with a baseball bat in 2012 started Wednesday.
Neil Evan Green, 33, is accused of allegedly killing his father with a baseball bat. The victim, Melvin Green, was 62 years old at the time of the alleged attack. Both lived in the same home on Moiola Avenue in El Centro.
The prosecutor’s office claimed during opening arguments that Neil Green allegedly attacked his father Melvin Green for an unknown reason.
But defense attorneys say Neil Green acted in self-defense.
Today both counsels presented evidence to use during the trial.
The trial will resume next week on Monday morning in Department 5.
