      Opening arguments in Akil Ings trial

      (WJLA) - Opening arguments got underway Tuesday in the murder trial of a student from Friendly High School. Akil Ings is charged with murdering 16-year old Marcus Jones.

      Jones was shot to death while leaving a party in Fort Washington in January of last year. Prosecutors call it gang-related. It's believed that Ings and Jones were members of rival gangs.

      Jones was one of six students killed last school year in Prince George's County.
