The trial of 17-year-old Brandon McInerney continued in a Chatsworth courtroom Thursday. He's accused of fatally shooting his openly gay classmate, Larry King, in a middle school classroom in Oxnard in 2008. The trial was moved from Ventura County to Los Angeles because it had drawn so much media attention. McInerney is being tried as an adult and is charged with first degree murder and a hate crime for the killing. The prosecution is expected to finish presenting its case early next week. Here with an update on the trial is Ventura County Star reporter Zeke Barlow.
