BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) — A New York City man charged in a fatal shooting in Biddeford is going on trial.

Opening statements are scheduled for Tuesday in the trial of 22-year-old Timothy Ortiz of Brooklyn after a jury was seated the day before in York County Superior Court.

Prosecutors say Ortiz killed 30-year-old Jonathan Methot of Biddeford in 2016. Ortiz did not enter a plea during a previous court appearance.

Police have been mum on details in the killing. The victim was the father of an 8-year-old boy.
