The trial began today for the man accused of killing 19-year-old Peter Mielke during a robbery at Reginelli’s Pizza. Peter was a graduate of Bellaire High School.

ABC13 reports that, “Prosecutors say Kiara Taylor went into Reginelli’s Pizza around closing time. Taylor pulled out a gun and ordered Mielke to open the register, but the 19-year-old employee could not open the cash drawer. That’s when Taylor allegedly shot Mielke several times then left. Prosecutors say Taylor then walked back inside the restaurant and shot Mielke several more times.”

According to the Chronicle, Taylor’s sister is expected to testify against him at the trial.
