MIDLAND - Opening statements got underway on Tuesday in the murder trial of a Midland man.

Police say 22-year-old Alex Saldana fired the shots that killed Stephen Adams in a Midland Whataburger parking lot back in November.

Adams and his wife were waiting outside the restaurant while their daughter was ordering food inside.

Adams' wife says she jumped out of the truck to find her husband lying on the ground with a gunshot wound.
