Trial Opens For California Policemen Charged In Homeless Man's Death

The trial of two former California policemen charged in the beating and death of a mentally ill transient opened on Monday with a prosecutor telling jurors that a "routine" police contact ended with the man dying in a pool of blood. Defense lawyers countered that 37-year-old Kelly Thomas suffered from a weakened heart brought on by drug abuse and died because he became combative with the police officers during the July 5, 2011 incident that lead to his death.
