The State of Texas called two witnesses to the stand Monday as the murder trail covered its first day.
Amador Mungia is accused of the 2015 murder of Juan Govea.
The jury of seven men and five women listened as Crystal Torres and Charlotte Trevino recalled the events that they saw and heard the night Govea was shot.
According to Torres, Mungia was upset the night he arrived at Govea's home. Govea asked Mungia to quiet down because Govea's father was asleep inside and was not feeling well.
Jim Wells County District Attorney Carlos Garcia played the two 9-1-1 calls made by Torres for the jury. Torres broke down in tears as the calls were played.
Trevino later took the stand. She explained how she observed flames like those of a lighter.
After police arrived Trevino remembers crawling to get a t-shirt on the porch and used it to clean the blood from Govea.
Judge Ricardo Terrell released the jury until Tuesday morning at 9 a.m.
