The trial for a Coyanosa man accused of murdering a teen is now underway.

On Tuesday, testimony got underway in the trial of 32-year-old Fabian Castaneda.

He's accused of shooting Javier Tellez, Junior, to death in a barn, east of Fort Stockton back in March of 1999.

Castaneda was arrested at the time but posted bond and disappeared for the next 10 years.

He was later caught in Eagle Pass in 2010 after a tip to the FBI.
