COLBERT COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Testimony continues Tuesday in a Shoals murder trial. Fernando King is accused of shooting and killing Dorian Hamilton during a home invasion in Sheffield last year.

Prosecutors said King participated in the robbery at the home on Sterling Boulevard the night of Hamilton's murder. Authorities said two masked men burst into a home where Hamilton was a guest.

According to investigators, Hamilton tried to keep the men out of a back bedroom when someone shot him through the door.

Damien Shipley and Donte Montgomery also face charges in connection with the case. Shipley has pleaded not guilty to capital murder. He's undergoing a mental evaluation.

Montgomery has a youthful offender hearing scheduled later in February.
