LEE COUNTY, AL  (WTVM) - The murder trial of Mike Britton begins Monday in East Alabama.

Britton is accused in the shooting death of Brian Hurst in Smiths Station, AL last September.

Investigators say the shooting followed an argument between Hurst and Britton's daughter.

A Lee County grand jury originally decided not to go forward with the case against Britton.

But new information surfaced in May, and Britton was indicted.
