BENTON HARBOR A trial is underway for a man accused of a murder, sparked by jealousy.

29-year-old Jovan Davis is charged with killing Gary Alilovich nearly one year ago.

Prosecutors claim he also assaulted his ex-girlfriend, Heather Poe, and intended to kill her. She was shot three times, and suffered 11 broken ribs.

The Herald Palladium reports that Poe’s 11-year-old son testified this week, saying he witnessed Davis stomping on Poe.

Davis claims he acted in self-defense.

At the time of the shooting, Davis lived with Poe in Benton Harbor.
