(Richmond, IN)--The murder trial of Stephen Via got underway Monday in Wayne Circuit Court. Via is on trial for shooting and killing Stacey Mosier in June of last year. In opening statements, Via’s attorney said his client was responsible for the shooting, but blamed it on a defective gun. That claim was refuted by the state’s first witness. She claimed that Via was very upset at Mosier, that he showed no emotion in describing the shooting, and that he had thought about shooting himself. Several RPD investigators testified about finding the body and other evidence. The trial resumes Tuesday morning.
