A Martin County murder trial gets underway Monday.
It was put in the forefront by the Trayvon Martin shooting, now the controversial "Stand Your Ground" law is front and center in a local case.
A murder trial is getting underway on Monday in Martin County. Daniel Diodato is accused of shooting Kyle Hicks back in October 2011.
Police say Hicks showed up at the home of Diodato in Jensen Beach, responding to an Internet ad. A fight broke out between the two and Diodato allegedly shot Hicks.
Diodato's attorneys are requesting that the charges be thrown out, citing "stand your ground", claiming their client was only trying to defend himself.
The trial is expected to last a week.
