Cheyenne, WY (AP) - Prosecutors plan to call witnesses in the murder trial of a Cheyenne man charged with killing two people and wounding a third in 2011.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reports that prosecutors told jurors Wednesday that Nathaniel Castellanos killed 21-year-old Corey Walker and 25-year-old Megan McIntosh in Cheyenne.

Amber McGuire, who was 23 years old at the time, was wounded.

The defense argued that police pressured Castellanos to admit to the shootings.

Castellanos is charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

If convicted, he could face life in prison or the death penalty.
