Ex-IU player goes on trial

Former Indiana University basketball player Devan Dumes is facing attempted murder charges in an Indianapolis courtroom. Dumes is charged with shooting Keith Jones in January. The trial began Monday with his attorney saying the 25-year-old was defending himself when he shot a drug dealer who wanted him to deliver cocaine to pay off a $225 debt. Jones, who spent two weeks in intensive care after the shooting, testified Monday that Dumes shot him while stealing his Chevrolet Camaro.
