DES MOINES, Iowa — The trial for a man accused of manslaughter is underway.

Twenty-six-year-old Patrick Glade is charged in the death of 17-year-old Aaliyah West. Officials say she died in June of 2013 from an overdose of methadone following a party in Grimes.

Glade wasn’t arrested until more than a year after West’s death.
