Murder Trial Began For Swain

The trial began today for a Longview man accused of murdering a woman and stuffing her body in an abandoned car.  Prosecutors say 23 year old Mario Rashad Swain broke into a home on Iris circle in Longview last year.  When the homeowner, 46-year old Lola Nixon, came home Swain allegedly beat her to death with a tire tool.
