Trial underway for stepson accused of killing Central District resident

Seattle Times is covering the trial of a man accused of murdering his stepfather after an argument at their MLK Way home in February 2010:

Zachary Collins, 21, is charged with second-degree murder in connection with the slaying of Glennis Parker in February. Parker was found dead in the driver’s seat of his GMC truck in a parking lot in the First Hill neighborhood.

Seattle police say that Collins and Parker got into an argument at Parker’s Central Area home on Feb. 9, about an hour before the slaying, and that someone from the home dialed 911 at 1:36 a.m. The line was disconnected without anyone speaking with dispatchers, although a fight could be heard over the line, charges said.

Collins is charged with second-degree murder in the crime.
