The trial for a teenager accused in a brutal Des Moines carjacking begins Monday.

Seventeen-year-old Terrence Cheeks faces two counts of first degree robbery. Investigators say Cheeks and two other teens severely beat Mike Wasike in a carjacking last year.

Wasike suffered a fractured skull and brain damage. He remains under constant care at a rehab facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Sixteen-year-old Leshaun Murray took a plea deal in his case. He will be sentenced in June.

Seventeen-year-old Kenneth Barry is scheduled for trial in May.
