Opening statements begun in Dontae Morris trial

TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) -- Opening statements began Tuesday in the Dontae Morris murder trial. 

Morris is charged with killing Tampa police officers Jeff Kocab and Dave Curtis during a traffic stop in 2010. 

Jurors will be able to view the dash-cam video of the shooting. 

Tampa attorney Joe Bodiford, who is not connected to this case, said it's unusual to have that type of evidence.

Hillsborough Circuit Judge William Fuente said he expects the trial to last five days or less.
