Trial Begins For Odessa Man Accused of Murder, Attempted Murder

Staff Report

ODESSA - The trial for an Odessa man accused of murder and attempted murder got underway on Tuesday.

It all stems from an incident that happened three years ago.

71-year-old Santiago Jimenez is accused of shooting and killing 19-year-old Ernest Byer, Junior.

He also reportedly wounded his father.

The shooting happened in the 12000 block of West Maria Drive and may have been the result of an ongoing dispute.

The trial was supposed to begin last month but was delayed when it was discovered that the lawyer for Jimenez had a suspended license.
