Ousted President Mohammad Morsi was defiant as he went on trial Tuesday for a prison break during the 2011 uprising, as a top police official was murdered in another sign of Egypt's instability.The trial, and other violence in which a police guard was gunned down outside a Cairo church, came a day after the military backed army chief Field Marshall Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, who led Morsi's ouster in July, to run for office in his place. Morsi is already on trial for inciting the killings of opposition activists during his presidency and faces two other trials that have yet to begin.Morsi and several Muslim Brotherhood leaders had been arrested by Mubarak's security forces two days earlier to stop them from participating in protests called for Jan. 28, 2011 .Morsi, Egypt's first civilian and freely elected president, was ousted following massive protests against his one-year rule.
