ODESSA - Court proceedings began on Tuesday in the trial of four people charged with the kidnapping and murder of a 22-year-old Odessa man.

Sean Lamb was shot to death in May of 2014.

Police say he was forced into a car and later killed.

Four of the suspects are on trial this week.

A fifth suspect, Liz Hernandez, already pled guilty to her part.

According to official documents, lamb was kidnapped on North Dixie and was beaten up.

He was then put into the front seat of a blue Ford Expedition where he was shot in the head and back.

Police found lamb in an alley on Neta Place, still in the SUV, where he was found dead.

Court documents say two of the suspects told police they thought they were just going to attack Lamb and scare him for allegedly stealing drugs and a car.
