Carter Beckwith

KINGMAN -- There’s no dispute that one teenager shot and killed another at a party in Lake Havasu City 18 months ago as a murder begins in Kingman. Attorneys, however, have asked a Mohave County Superior Court jury to reach disparate conviction-acquittal outcomes in the trial of Carter Beckwith, 19, Lake Havasu City.

Prosecutor Rod Albright and defense attorney Jaimye Ashley used only 10 minutes to present opening statements to the panel at the Law and Justice Center Monday afternoon. Albright said the defendant was just 18 years old when a July 9 party attended ``by lots of people” spilled into the early morning hours of July 10, 2021 at a home at 2387 Alpine Lane.
