A cold case murder trial returns to the courtroom this morning in the Lake Area. David Smith, from Camdenton, is charged with First-Degree Murder in the case dating back to the beginning of April, 2006. It’s alleged that Smith got into an argument with Shawn Spencer with, at least, one shot being fired killing Spencer. Spencer’s body was never found. Today’s appearance in court is for a pre-trial conference with the trial, itself, set to begin on the 28th of this month with Circuit Judge Kenneth Hayden presiding.
