CUMBERLAND — Testimony has begun in the first-degree murder trial in Cumberland of a state prison inmate charged with strangling the killer of two adolescent girls.
Prosecutors began calling witnesses after a jury was chosen Tuesday morning.
Thirty-six-year-old Christopher White is accused of murdering cellmate Clarence Meyers Jr. in December at the North Branch Correctional Institution.
Meyers was serving two life sentences for setting a house fire in Hancock that killed his girlfriend’s two adolescent daughters in 2009.
White is serving 23 years for a 1995 conviction in Wicomico County for kidnapping, larceny, assault and weapons violations.
