MIDLAND - The second murder trial of 2010 is underway this week in Midland.     

Opening arguments began on Tuesday morning in the trial of 22-year-old Jose 'Jo-Jo' Valenzuela.

He is the second man to face a jury for the stabbing death of Victor Vidal back in July.

The first man to go to trial, Henry Ahola, was acquitted of murder and aggravated assault back in November.

Matthew Mancha, the third man accused in the killing, goes to trial at a later date.
