LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Steven Pettway is on trial for the second time after his first ended in a mistrial last fall.

Pettway is accused of killing a witness in another trial. Troya Sheckles was shot and killed in a park, in broad daylight before she could testify in a murder trial.

The girlfriend of co-defendant Dejuan Hammond, whose brother Lloyd is accused of killing Sheckles' boyfriend, took the stand. She said she couldn't remember much about the day Sheckles was shot to death.

The trial against Steve Pettway continues Friday. Co-defendant Dejuan Hammond's trial is scheduled to happen once Pettway's trial wraps up.
