A Bosnian war crimes suspect living in Vermont is on trial in federal court.
If convicted, 55-year-old Edin Sakoc could be deported.
He's charged with lying to immigration officials when he entered the United States in 2001 as a refugee by telling them he hadn't committed any crimes in Bosnia. He's also charged with lying in 2007 when he applied to become a naturalized U.S. citizen. He's pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors allege Sakoc was involved in war crimes against a Bosnian Serb family in 1992. The Burlington Free Press reports attorneys played videotaped testimony of a man who said two men kidnapped his niece and killed two other female relatives. Prosecutors allege Sakoc was one of the men.
Sakoc's lawyer said the alleged accomplice is the person who is guilty.
