HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - The suspect in a murder outside of a Hamilton bar is standing trial.

Myron Lamar Doby, aka 'Cowboy', 55, appeared in court Monday for a 3-day bench trial.

Doby was charged with murder in the shooting death of 44-year-old Donnell Holland. Holland's body was found in the parking lot of the Grub Pub Bar on Hancock Avenue in late December 2012.

Authorities say he turned himself into the Butler County Sheriff's Department days later, after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Doby faces 21 years to life in prison if convicted.
