(INDIANAPOLIS) - A Plainfield man accused of beating his 88-year-old mother to death goes on trial for murder today.

William Rainsberger called 911 in November and told paramedics he'd found his mother Ruth on the floor of her Indianapolis home with her head "bashed in." But police say doctors thought at first glance that Ruth Rainsberger had been shot.

And they say security video from a nearby Kroger shows Rainsberger throwing away an object, six minutes before he called 911 from his mother's house.
