A man accused of faking an accident to cover up the murder of his wife goes on trial in La Crosse County Circuit Court today (Monday). 

Todd Kendhammer told authorities he and his wife of 25 years were in their car when a pipe came flying through its windshield and hit her in the head.  Police say her injuries aren't consistent with Kendhammer's story.  The judge expects the trial to last 10 days, with jury selection first on the schedule.  Barbara Kendhammer suffered extensive injuries September 16th.  An autopsy conducted by Dane County Deputy Medical Examiner Kathleen McCubbin contradicted much of the husband's account.
