(WHAS11) -- Testimony started Tuesday in a high-profile murder trial for a man accused of killing a witness.

Steven Pettway will be tried for the murder of Troya Sheckles. She was killed in broad daylight at a Louisville park in 2009.

The case is so volatile that the courts are asking for special precautions to keep everyone safe. Prosecutors want to make sure everyone who takes the witness stand will remain as safe as possible.
