A Quincy man is on trial, accused of stabbing a man in the parking lot of a popular bar.

Thirty-three-year-old Derrick Sweet is accused of attempted murder. Deputies say he stabbed an acquaintance several times in the parking lot of the Riverfront Saloon back in January.

Sweet turned himself in to authorities a few days later.

Sweet's trial began Tuesday morning and the jury is expected to begin deliberating on Wednesday.
