    (WXYZ) - The trial for former Inkster police officer William Melendez will resume Thursday. Melendez was charged in the beating of Floyd Dent.

    It's a story that gained national attention after the video of the beating went viral.

    Opening statements will begin this morning in the case against William Melendez. The 47-year-old was captured on video repeatedly punching Dent in the head during a traffic stop back in January.

    Melendez has been charged with assault and was fired by the Inkster Police Department.
    ​Blessed are they with nothing to say and the wisdom not to say it.

    I'm watching this trial. I don't understand the defense's assertion that Melendez was following Dent all the way from the budget inn. Anyone else watching?

    From November:

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/...guilty-n466471

    William Melendez, who was fired from the Inkster Police Department in April following the Jan. 28 incident, was found guilty of misconduct in office and assault with intent to do great bodily harm.

    On a separate count of strangulation, he was found not guilty...

    He faces up to 10 years in prison.

    Earlier this month:

    http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2016/02/...of-floyd-dent/

    Painting a lurid picture of a brutal white officer attacking a hapless black man, Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Vonda Evans sentenced Inkster police officer William Melendez to 13 months to 10 years behind bars.

    Melendez sat stoically in court Tuesday as Evans, in usual fighting form, unleashed a lengthy discussion of the acts he was convicted of.
