Reporting from the district court in Hidalgo County where the murder trial against Manuel Sanchez Jr continues…
Reports indicate back in January of 2014 Sanchez had an altercation at a bar and was subsequently kicked out.
According to the report, a few minutes later, Sanchez opened fire at a crowd in the parking lot injuring two men. One of those two men was Daniel Avila, who died due to his injuries, but his friend who was also shot was able to recover.
Today the state called on a forensic scientist who showed members of the jury evidence explaining how the incident may have occurred.
Sanchez is facing up to life in prison if found guilty.
