GOSHEN, Ind.-On Monday morning, the murder trial will begin for the Elkhart man accused of killing a Goshen man, whose body was found at the Kingsbury Fish and Wildlife Area in LaPorte County back in November 2016.
Scotty Irvin, 41, was arrested on a preliminary charge of murder for the death of 41-year old Mark Huber.
On November 22nd, 2016, Huber’s girlfriend, Tifanee Burrows, dropped him off at Kercher and Dierdorff roads in Goshen for work. When Burrows went to pick Huber up that afternoon, he never showed up.
A missing person report was filed with the Goshen Police Department. Huber’s body was later found at the Kingsbury Wildlife area by a local utility company employee.
