Testimony begins in murder trial

YAKIMA, Wash. -- It was the start of testimony in the trial of a man accused of killing a local real estate agent.

Seven witnesses took the stand in the Daniel Blizzard murder trial. He's accused of killing Vern Holbrook.

The jury heard from first responders, law enforcement, one of Holbrook's doctors and a neighbor.

Prosecutors showed pictures of the scene of the assault. The realtor was found badly beaten last year in a home for sale in Cowiche. He died months later.
