Trial began Thursday for a man accused of killing a pregnant Arlington mother of three in June 2010.
Andrew King, 26, is charged with two counts of murder int he deaths of 23-year-old Felicia Burney and her unborn child.
Prosecutors said Burney's roommate found her stabbed to death insider her home in the 8300 block of Berry Avenue. Burney left behind three preschool-agred children and was nearly nine months pregnant.
The roommate, Kathleen Danielle Butler, took the stand in court Thursday and listened to her own 911 call of when she found Burney dead on couch.
King was initially arrested on unrelated charges the day of the killing and named a person of interest in Burney's death. He wasn't charged with her murder until August 2010, according to our news partner Channel 4.
King faces the death penalty if he's convicted. The trial trial is expected to go into next week.
