Prosecutor: We all agree Gouker is 'a monster'

  • Opening statements began Wednesday in the Josh Young trial
  • Teen is charged with 'complicity to murder' in stepbrother's slaying
  • Trey Zwicker was found beaten to death in 2011

It's rare that you find moments in a trial when both the prosecution and defense agree, but that appeared to happen Wednesday during the prosecution's opening statements in the Josh Young trial.

Prosecutor Erin White said both sides agree that Joshua Young's dad, Josh Gouker, who was convicted in the brutal murder of his stepson Trey Zwicker, is "a monster."

Young is accused of complicity to murder in the death of his stepbrother. In his opening statement, Young's attorney said the teen was "the fall guy" for his father's heinous act.
