Trial to open in slaying of OH football coach

HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — The man accused of killing a popular Ohio youth football coach last year is standing trial this week in southwestern Ohio.

A three-day bench trial in Hamilton is scheduled to start Monday for 55-year-old Myron Lamar Doby.

The Hamilton JournalNews (http://bit.ly/Zgzg04 ) reports that Doby is charged with murder in the shooting death of 44-year-old Darrell Holland outside a bar in December.

If convicted, he faces a sentence of 21 years to life in prison.

Doby has pleaded not guilty to murder with gun specifications. He pleaded guilty last week to two additional charges of having weapons under a disability.

Holland, who grew up in Hamilton, was the father of two elementary school-aged boys.
