ST. GEORGE -- The murder trial begins today for a man accused of killing two men and burying them on his property.

Martin Chris Nelson pleaded not guilty to two counts of aggravated murder in the deaths of Derek Davis and Chad Grijalva in 2007.

Prosecutors say Nelson shot the St. George men over debt he owed and then buried them in a shallow grave on his property.

If convicted, he could get the death penalty.
