Murder trial for Joshua Young set for Monday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The murder trial for a 17-year-old who is accused of killing his stepbrother is scheduled to begin Monday.

Joshua Young is set to go on trial for the murder of 14-year-old Trey Zwicker.

Zwicker was found dead in a creek behind Liberty High School in May of 2011.

On Friday, Young's father, Joshua Gouker, was sentenced to life in prison for the murder.

Gouker initially told police Joshua Young committed the murder, but later said that Young was not involved.

Prosecutors have not dropped the complicity to murder charge against Young.

We don't know yet if his father will testify during the trial.
