Deliberate homicide trial underway in Helena

The deliberate homicide trial is underway for a man accused of shooting and killing his girlfriend in Helena.

Opening statements started Skyler Schneider’s trial yesterday, nearly a year after he reportedly shot Katherine Spencer in the head while she was in a car on 12th Avenue.

Investigators have not disclosed a motive for the shooting but say that Schneider reportedly told them they had been arguing that day.
