A trial is underway for a Fort Stockton man accused of stabbing his wife to death in a convenience store parking lot.

Police say 40-year-old Luis Orona actually confessed to them that he killed his 25-year-old wife, Mayra.

According to the affidavit, he admitted to slashing her 20 times.

Fort Stockton Police found his wife last year laying on the ground in a pool of blood at the Stripes parking lot on north Front Street.   

Witnesses say Orona stabbed her to death and Orona's employer also told police he confessed to them too.
