The trials for the sunken Sewol-ho ferry's captain and crew members will begin this Tuesday afternoon.
The Gwangju District Court says the first trial for Captain Lee Jun-seok and 14 crew members will start at 2 PM, Korea time.
The captain and three other senior crew members are charged with murder with willful negligence.
They were among the first people to get off the ferry and they made no attempt to help passengers evacuate.
On this first day of the trial, prosecutors and the defense will lay out their positions and apply for evidence to be examined.
The key focus is on whether the captain and the three other crew members will be found guilty of the most serious charges.
Most of the crew partially admit to negligence.
