Opening arguments began today in the trial of a man who is charged with the attempted murder of two men in San Diego in 2006.
Jeffery Trigo, 25, is charged with two counts of attempted murder, one count of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with a Dec. 30, 2006 incident.
According to San Diego Police reports, the incident occurred in the 500 block of Cuatro Milpas Street shortly after 2 a.m.
During that incident, three men, including Trigo, allegedly drove up to a home in the 500 block of Cuatro Milpas and assaulted four individuals in front of the home.
Two of those four individuals, Jose Angel Gonzalez Jr., 21, and Daniel Chapa Jr., 20, were stabbed in the upper body during the incident.
Trigo and another suspect were arrested the next day.
On Monday, a jury of eight men and four women was seated for the trial.
Trigo is represented by Benavides attorney Atlee M. Parr. Assistant District Attorney Jon West is prosecuting the case.
