Posted: Updated:

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - Opening arguments are planned in the murder trial of a 40-year-old Binghamton man accused of strangling his estranged wife and beating her male friend to death.

Aaron Powell is accused of killing 35-year-old Christina Powell and 24-year-old Mario Masciarelli inside her town of Binghamton home in March 2013. Authorities say Christina Powell had been strangled with an electrical cord. Powell was arrested in Pennsylvania several days after the victims' bodies were found.

Broome County District Attorney Gerald Mollen and defense lawyer Thomas Cline are expected to present opening arguments on Monday.
