GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The trial against a man accused of murdering a security guard at a Greensboro nightclub is scheduled to begin Monday morning in Guilford County Superior Court.

Robert Teon Ingram, 34, is charged with first degree murder in the death of 54-year-old Winfred Hunt.

Officials said Hunt was shot and killed after breaking up a fight at Players Club at 2507 High Point Road on Feb. 18, 2011.

Authorities said Ingram turned himself in three days later and was charged with murder.

Hunt worked at the club part-time and served on his son's school PTA board. He died at Moses Cone Hospital from his injuries.

Hunt’s death was the start of the Greensboro City Council's entertainment ordinance passed on Tuesday.

The owner of the club, Dwayne Walters, said Hunt was a friend of his.

Hunt’s wife said she plans to be at the courthouse once the trial begins. She said even after a couple years and counseling for her and her son, things have been difficult without Hunt.

Ingram’s attorney filed a motion to postpone the trial last month as he continues to look for more witnesses for the case.
