ODESSA - Testimony is set to begin on Wednesday in the murder trial of Daniel Orona.

He's accused of killing an Odessa man two years ago during a robbery.

Prosecutors say Orona shot Hector Medrano at the Spanish Oaks Apartments in August of 2007.

Hector's brother, Alex, was also wounded.

Investigators say the two men were approached by Orona and two other men who demanded cash.

Before the Medrano's could respond, the gunfire started.

Two other suspects are still awaiting their trials in the case.
