PICKENS, S.C. (AP) - Testimony has started in Pickens in the trial of an Easley man accused of killing his wife two years ago.

Donald Kinsela is charged with murder and arson in the fire that authorities say killed his 47-year-old wife Cheryl in July 2010.

Prosecutor Walt Wilkins says his team has enough evidence that the fire was intentionally set.

Defense attorney Druanne White says jurors will hear evidence about a tragic accident.

Former Police Officer Jeremy Mills testified he found Donald Kinsela outside the shed with a garden hose. Mills says Kinsela told him his wife was in the shed and they needed to get to her. Mills says he told Kinsela they had to wait for the fire department and says he had to prevent him from going into the building.
