The second degree murder trial for Lajray Gordon, charged in 24 year old David Merasty's death, began on Monday at Court of Queen's Bench.
Merasty was found injured in an alley in the 300 block of Avenue E South in June of 2016. He was taken to hospital where he succumbed to his injury. During the investigation, Saskatoon Police were collecting video from the area and encouraged citizens and business owners to contact them if they thought they had some video which could help. A picture from surveillance video was released to the public. Lajray Gordon was arrested and charged in October of 2016. The jury trial is scheduled to run through the 23rd.
