WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – The trial of Royce Honaker began Monday in Trumbull County.

Honaker is being tried for the murder of his wife, Donna Honaker, on July 31, 2012.

Honaker made a 911 call on that day telling police he had killed his wife.

He has been evaluated three times to determine if he knew right from wrong when the crime was being committed. The most recent evaluation said he did not.

The prosecution called three witnesses to the stand today, all from the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Department.
