Martha Stewart's trial on charges of obstructing justice and securities fraud begins in New York. Federal prosecutors say Stewart lied to them when questioned about a suspicious stock trade. Stewart's attorney counters that the government's case lacks solid evidence. A jury of eight women and four men will hear the case. NPR's Michele Norris talks with NPR's Jim Zarroli.
