A Benton Harbor man was in court today on charges of murdering an 18-year-old.

Terrance Shelby, 30, faces one charge of open murder and a felony firearm charge. He's accused of killing 18-year-old Grady Manns last May.

The state and defense both started with opening statements. While Shelby's attorney Lanny Fisher was speaking, Shelby got very emotional as Fisher recounted the night.

Manns allegedly had a relationship with Shelby's 13 year old step daughter. In the early morning hours of May 12, Shelby went downstairs in his home and found his step-daughter and Manns. According to police, he said he was going to "whoop [his daughter's] expletive" and she fled the home. When Manns tried to leave the front door, he wouldn't let him. So Manns fled through the back door.
