A Winnipeg man has pleaded not guilty in the stabbing death of another outside an Arlington Street home and began his jury trial this morning.
Nathan Bricklin's fate is now in the hands of seven men and five women as he fights allegations he murdered Steven Kyle Dodge in June 2011.
Police have said a domestic disagreement at a home in the 400 block of Arlington Street led Dodge to try and intervene to stop it.
That led to a confrontation in the home's backyard where Dodge was stabbed in the upper body.
"The evidence is fairly straightforward," senior Crown attorney Brian Bell told jurors. Among the evidence they'll see over the course of the trial will be a videotaped statement of Bricklin confessing to the stabbing, Bell said.
Court of Queen's Bench Justice Robert Dewar warned jurors they may be called upon to decide whether Bricklin, 20, is guilty of manslaughter, and not second-degree murder as the Crown alleges he is.
The trial is set to last eight days.
