The trial of businessman Stephen Causewell who is charged with the 2008 Oakland Apartment murder of his ex girlfriend is set to begin in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court today.
Causewell is alleged to have killed 27-year-old Nardia Mitchell on the evening of July 16, 2008 at her St Andrew apartment.
Mitchell's body was found on the grounds of the apartment complex.
It was initially reported that she died after falling from the building.
However, a post mortem revealed that her injuries were not consistent with a fall.
The police say the post mortem indicated that Mitchell died from injuries caused by a blunt object that was used to hit her on the head.
