LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Darren Englert pleaded guilty to murder back in March but later tried to withdraw that plea.
He's on trial this week for conspiracy to commit murder and criminal confinement charges in the death of Jeremy Gibson, 26.
Gibson was beaten to death in July of 2011.
His body was found in a shallow grave in western Tippecanoe County.
In a handwritten letter from jail Englert claimed he was not of sound mind when he originally agreed to pleaded guilty to murder.
However it was rejected by the court.
If jury selection is completed today opening arguments could begin this afternoon.
