Orr Trial Begins

Opening arguments are beginning today in the murder trial of man once considered one of Savannah's most wanted. Dorian Orr is accused of killing Michael Grant on May 17, 2003.

Police say Orr shot Grant to death in Fred Wessels Homes. After the shooting, Orr fled to New York, but a fugitive squad found him.

Grant was one of five people killed in a two-week period. Former Savannah rapper Camoflauge was among them. Police believe all the cases were gang related.

The trial is expected to last through the week.
