AVOCA (AP) — Prosecutors are expected to present their case Wednesday in the second trial against Robert Reynolds.

Reynolds was convicted in November 2014 of killing 64-year-old Patricia Kinkade-Dorsey after a night of drinking at his and his wife’s Oakland home. Kinkade-Dorsey was a friend of his wife.

The Daily Nonpareil reports that prosecution and defense lawyers agreed to a nonjury trial in Avoca. Prosecutors also agreed to lower the charge against Reynolds to second-degree murder.

Defense attorney Bill McGinn says the prosecution will present its case Wednesday and the defense plans to have witnesses testify on Thursday.
