LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The trial started Monday for the man accused of shooting two Clark County judges in a White Castle parking lot.

Brandon Kaiser faces several felony charges for the shooting in Indianapolis in 2019. According to police, Kaiser and another man, Alfredo Vazquez, got into a fight with Clark County Judges Andrew Adams and Brad Jacobs.
