      Armed robbery trial underway in Iron Mountain

      The Iron Mountain man accused of holding up a taxi driver at knifepoint last March went on trial Wednesday.

      Adam Anthony Gilbert is charged with armed robbery. If convicted, Gilbert could be facing life in prison as a third time habitual offender.

      While there is little physical evidence, the prosecution took the court through the chain of events leading up to the alleged robbery, including video evidence of Gilbert stealing about $238 of merchandise from Wal-Mart that same day.

      However, the defense attorney argued there's no evidence linking Gilbert to the robbery.

      Gilbert allegedly held up the taxi driver after receiving a ride from Escanaba to Iron Mountain.

      The trial will continue Thursday in Dickinson County Circuit Court.
