A man charged with murder and bias intimidation in the fatal shooting of a transgender female in a Maplewood apartment will stand trial this week, with the defendant’s alleged accomplice expected to testify as the state’s star witness.

Two women who authorities have not previously mentioned but who were in the home that night in September 2010 may also take the stand to bolster the prosecution’s case and address the bias allegation.
