TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The second of nine people accused in the shooting death of a Topeka woman goes on trial this week.
Seventeen-year-old Daquan Wilkins' trial on murder and other charges begins Monday in Shawnee County Court. He's accused of participating in the shooting death of 40-year-old Natalie Gibson and the wounding of Gibson's partner, 42-year-old Lori Allison.
The women were shot in July 2011 during an attempted robbery at their home.
Anceo Stovall was the first defendant tried in the case. In late July, a jury found Stovall guilty of aggravated robbery and acquitted him of burglary but could not reach verdicts on nine other charges. Prosecutors say they will try Stovall again.
