Amazing investigative work, that's what officials say led up to the arrest of a man who is now on trial for the murder of a East High School junior.
The trial for Devonte Lively began Wednesday with opening statements. He's accused of killing 17-year-old Larie Butler. Butler was missing for a week before being found in a backyard pool in Irondequoit.
News10NBC learned more about how investigators found Larie Butler's body in the pool in March of last year. News10NBC also heard emotional testimony from Larie's mother.
The day Larie went missing, her family went to Devonte Lively's house to ask him where she was. Larie had told her mother they were going to the mall. Larie's mother was in tears when she told the jury what Lively kept telling her, “I swear to God, ma'am. I don't know where she is. I dropped her off at East High School."
