Jurors began hearing the gruesome details Tuesday surrounding the March 2016 death of Iolan Shawn Cook.

Testimony opened in Day 2 of the first-degree murder trial of Joshua Knapp, who is the last of five defendants originally charged in Cook’s killing.

In his opening statement, Allen County Attorney Jerry Hathaway spelled out the prosecution’s case: that a failed drug deal led to Knapp murdering Cook the night of March 13, 2016.
