Trial begins for man accused in construction worker death

The trial is now underway for a Bridgeport man accused of murdering a construction worker.



Police say Gregory Weathers shot Jose Araujo at a construction site on Chopsey Hill Road in 2015.



Investigators say Weathers did not know the victim and shot him just minutes after asking him for a job.



The Connecticut Post newspaper says Weathers has maintained he is suffering from a mental disease or defect which is an insanity defense.
