WILKES-BARRE -- A homicide trial is underway for the man accused of killing a woman in the Sherman Hills housing complex in Wilkes-Barre.

Opening statements began Tuesday morning at the Luzerne County Courthouse in the trial of Kenneth Evans.

Police say Evans shot Shantique Goodson last November after an argument at the troubled housing complex.

Investigators said Evans and Goodson were previously arrested for selling heroin.

According to court workers, the woman who dropped Goodson off at the hospital testified against Evans Tuesday.

More witnesses are expected to take the stand on Wednesday.
