Simpson arrives at courthouse for robbery-kidnap trial

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- O.J. Simpson has arrived at a Las Vegas courtroom for opening statements and the start of testimony in his robbery-kidnapping trial.

Lawyers for the disgraced NFL Hall of Famer are expected to tell the jury that Simpson and five other men were trying to retrieve keepsakes and family heirlooms when they pushed into a cramped casino hotel room to confront two memorabilia peddlers a year ago.

Prosecutors will use testimony from four former co-defendants who have taken plea deals to cast the confrontation as a dangerous plot.

If he's found guilty, Simpson could go to prison for the rest of his life.
