TUCSON - Opening statements underway in the Michael Carlson trial. He confessed in a News4 interview of killing almost a dozen people in June of 2009.
Carlson is charged with the double murder of his neighbors. He's accused of murdering Kenneth Alliman known as "KR" and Rebecca Lofton in May 2009.
Prosecutor Nicol Green began opening statements by explaining to jurors dates and times leading to the murders. She gave them a lay of the land and said Carlson was homeless. Alliman and Lofton gave him a place to stay so he repaid them by killing them, burning their bodies and burying them. Green says no one should die the way these people did. She also told them he had confessed to their murders.
