COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The trial for a local murder that has gained national attention for over a decade has begun.

In 2014, Columbus police arrested Rebecca Haynie and Donald Keith Phillips.

The defense argued to have the case dismissed because they say the defendants were not granted a speedy trial.

No judgment has been made.
