Greenville – Testimony begins today for a Mesquite man, charged in the stabbing death of a Greenville man almost two years ago. Prosecutors are no longer seeking the death penalty for John William Trotman III.
Instead, should he be convicted of capital murder, he would face an automatic sentence of life in prison without parole. Trotman is alleged to have killed Ryon Rhoden in November, 2007.
