St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - Trial is underway in St. Louis Circuit Court for a south city man charged with killing the circulation manager of a popular St. Louis newspaper.

20 year old Rico Ricardo Paul is charged with first degree murder, attempted burglary, and armed criminal action in the May 2011 shooting death of 58 year old Paul Reiter in the Dutchtown neighborhood.

Investigators say Reiter was fatally shot behind his home in the 500 block of Idaho after authorities say the victim ran into Paul trying to break into a neighbors home.

Prosecutors say Paul was already on probation for an unrelated robbery conviction when the murder occurred.
