PARKER - Trial is getting under way for a South Dakota man accused of killing his infant son.

Thirty-nine-year-old Chris Miller, of Scotland, has pleaded not guilty to several charges including second-degree murder in the March 2011 death of 4-month-old Jacob Miller, who authorities say was an abused child.
