Trial begins for 3 men charged in Prince George homicide

A murder trial began Monday in Prince George, B.C. related to the nearly five-year-old homicide of a 22-year-old man.

On June 23, 2012,  RCMP officers discovered the body of Jordan Christian Reno inside a box outside a mobile home on Knight Crescent, north of the city. 

Police said an autopsy revealed Reno died as a result of foul play. Investigators described the death as "a targeted attack," and believed Reno was involved in the illicit drug trade. 

Lyle William Baker, Kevin Roy Zaporoski, and Dustin Allen Lindgren have all been charged with first-degree murder. 

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Ronald Tindale, and a 12-person jury will hear evidence over the next three months. 

Correction : An earlier version of this story said police found Jordan Reno's body inside the mobile home. In fact, during the trial, court heard Reno's body was discovered in a box outside the home. (Apr 24, 2017 3:37 PM)
