Capital murder trial underway in McLennan County


The capital murder trial for a man accused of stabbing a 70-year-old to death is underway in McLennan County.

Prosecutors say Marcus Jerome Landrum killed Santiago Gonzalez in Gonzalez's Waco apartment in January of 2011.

Police found a bag of bloody clothes with Landrum's DNA on them, along with other evidence.

But the defense says Landrum is innocent.

During today's opening statements, Landrum's attorneys called the killing a "real life murder mystery of whodunit".

Gonzalez was stabbed more than two dozen times and his dog was also killed.
