Testimony began Tuesday in the trial for the man accused of killing a martial arts instructor at a drive-in movie theater.

Mitt Lenix, 28, was shot at the Starlight-Six Drive-In in May 2012.

Police said Quentric Williams shot Lenix and then led officers on a high-speed chase, crashed his truck and took off running.

"I know that everybody thinks he did this, he should be put to death or something. I don't wish that. I don't believe in revenge because I want him to know that I forgive him," said Lenix's mother, Candy Lenix.

Mitt Lenix taught martial arts at his family's school, Universal Martial Arts, in Henry County his parents said.

He started learning it when he was 7.

Mitt Lenix was also a combat medic in the Army National guard and a Georgia State University student who had almost completed his pre-med requirements. His parents said Mitt wanted to be a doctor.
