Trial begins for Ohio teen accused of killing twin

The trial has begun for an Ohio teenager accused of fatally shooting his identical twin brother last year.
Attorneys gave opening statements Tuesday in the murder trial of 19-year-old Derris Lewis of Columbus.
Defense attorney Adam Nemann (NEE'-man) says witnesses will testify that another man masterminded the robbery that led to Dennis Lewis' death at his mother's home in January 2008.
Nemann says the twins were best friends and that Derris Lewis was miles away when the shooting occurred.
Prosecutor Tim Mitchell says police found three sets of prints that link Derris Lewis to the slaying.
Lewis is charged with aggravated murder, aggravated robbery and kidnapping. He faces up to life in prison if convicted.
