The prosecution has begun questioning witnesses in the Arthur Little trial.

He's the New Bern man accused of gunning down Anthony Jones in a U.S. Cellular parking lot more than two years ago.

Jones' girlfriend Tanya Wilson took the stand today and broke down just before a short recess.

She said Jones met her at the cell phone store on June 13th 2006 to buy a new phone.

Both sides agree Little shot Jones, the defense says it was not murder in the first degree, the defense says Little feared for his life.
