DALLAS (AP) - Josh Brent is no longer a Dallas Cowboy, but the stars on his old helmet figure heavily into his upcoming trial for a teammate's death in a 2012 wreck.

Brent's trial is set to start Monday on allegations that he was driving drunk and caused the death of Dallas practice squad player Jerry Brown. If convicted of intoxication manslaughter or manslaughter, Brent could get 20 years in prison, but he could also get probation.

Brent's attorney has argued his client deserves probation. But prosecutors have made Brent's case a priority.

Brent and Brown were headed home the morning of Dec. 8, 2012, when Brent's Mercedes wrecked in the Dallas suburb of Irving. Police said tests showed Brent had a blood alcohol level that was more than twice the legal limit.
