Capital Murder Trial Begins For Luster

Opening arguments began today for the man accused of killing two people in a crime spree.

24 year old Roderic Luster is charged with capital murder and aggravated robbery. Prosecutors say he and his now 17 year old girlfriend Barbara Jeffery robbed convenience stores in Gladewater and Longview last August.

Store clerks Wendy McDonald and Muhammaed Ali Khan were shot and killed.

Luster could face life in prison. Barbara Jeffery was sentenced to life in prison last May.
