INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A prosecutor says former Indianapolis Colts linebacker Josh McNary ignored a woman's requests to stop after he began having sex with her at his apartment last December.

Deputy Prosecutor Courtney Curtis said in her opening statement Monday in McNary's trial that the woman willingly went there with McNary but the sex was not consensual.

However, defense attorney Jessie Cook said the accuser is "a confused young woman" who "drinks too much" and mixes medication with her drinks. Cook said the woman voluntarily kissed and flirted with McNary.

The 27-year-old McNary is charged with rape, criminal confinement and battery.

The trial is expected to take about four days.

McNary was arrested in January. His contract expired two months later.
