Posted by on September 8th:
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. -- The trial of Glen Race, the Halifax, Nova Scotia, man accused of going on a killing spree in May 2007 that left three men dead, is under way in Plattsburgh.

Race, 27, is charged with killing Darcy Manor, 35, of Mooers, N.Y., and two Canadian men before fleeing to Texas, where he was arrested after a scuffle with border agents near the Mexican border.

Manor, a father of two, was shot and killed at a secluded hunting camp.

Opening arguments started at 1:30 p.m. Monday.

Defense attorney Mark McCormick of Malone has indicated he will use an insanity defense.

The bench trial is expected to be largely focused on expert medical testimony regarding Race's mental capacity, according to McCormick.
