ATLANTA (AP) The case of a Forsyth County man charged in a boating accident on Lake Lanier that killed two boys could soon be headed to a jury.

Paul Bennett is charged with homicide by vessel, failure to render aid, reckless operation and boating under the influence.

His fishing boat collided with the front of a pontoon boat on June 18, 2012, killing 9-year-old Jake Prince and 13-year-old Griffin Prince.

Bennett's attorney said the wreck was an accident. Prosecutors say Bennett was boating while intoxicated.

The trial began on Monday, November 4 in Hall County Superior Court.
