The trial of a homeless man accused of painting swastikas on an Olney synagogue began today with prosecutors describing him as filled with hate and the man's defense attorney saying his client is troubled.

Montgomery County Assistant State's Attorney Jeffrey Wennar told the jury that Ian Jacob Baron, 23, vandalized B'nai Shalom in July out of hate and that Baron planned the vandalism. Wennar showed the jury photographs of anti-Semitic phrases such as "Sieg Heil" and "Death 2 Zionists" painted on the synagogue.
