Trial underway in cop beating

The trial for two transit police officers accused of beating Marlon Smith in the Bronx three years ago is getting underway.

Prosecutors are alleging Koleen Robinson and Michelle Anglin physically abused Smith after a dispute regarding an open car door.

The jury has asked how many blows were delivered and the panel also asked to read testimony about another party who is allegedly stepped into the altercation and was also beaten.

After the incident, Smith received 25 staples in his head.  The officers claim Smith attacked them first.  (NY1)
