BAKERCOUNTY, Ore. -- The trial began Monday for an Oregon man accused of trying to kill his grandson's father.

Lester Reger is charged with attempted murder and opening arguments began today for his trial in Baker County.

He is one of four people accused of trying to kill Ramon Fry in February.

Fry was shot twice, once in the head and once in the back, but managed to escape and survive the shooting.

Lester Reger's wife, Erlene, and another man, Todd Mulvaine, were found guilty for their involvement last month.

During their trial, the prosecutor said Mulvaine provided the gun and dug a grave for Fry, while Erlene Reger lured Fry into their garage, where Lester Reger shot him twice.

Testimony in Lester Reger's trial begins Tuesday.
