PAW PAW (WKZO) -- The murder trial of William Stephens of Illinois, who is charged with the stabbing death of a Kalamazoo man last fall at a motel in Paw Paw has begun.
Stephens is expected to take the stand to defend himself.
Despite multiple stab wounds, Trey Yarbrough walked across the street to a gas station, called 9-1-1 and identified his attacker when officers arrived. Yarbrough died later at Bronson Lakeview Hospital.
Stephens was stopped and arrested in Battle Creek a few hours later.
He is charged with open murder.
