last two weeks. remember there was another defendant in this case, at least another person charged in connection with the murder of marcos arenas. that person, jacob dismont, about the same age as michael solid. dismont accepted a plea deal about two weeks ago. so he is not on trial here. a plea deal we understand was likely offered to michael solid but he did not accept it so he is moving toward trial here beginning today in the death of marcos arenas. probably take a couple of days, will likely wrap up on wednesday then perhaps on thursday opening arguments will begin. the sentence for michael solid if indeed he is convicted as charged, the maximum sentence in this case would be 20 to perhaps 50 years to life in prison. i'm craig fiegener reporting live, news 3.
