Trial began Wednesday in St. Marys for a man accused of malicious assault.
A jury was seated in the trial of Ronald Lee Murner.
Assistant Pleasants County Prosecutor Paul Marteney says Murner is accused of striking a man with a rubber mallet.
The victim suffered a fractured skull and required a plate be installed in his head.
The trial is set to continue Thursday in Pleasants County Circuit Court.
