BROWNSVILLE – A trial date is set for a man accused in the 2007 murder of a Harlingen teen.  

Ruben Torres is charged in the death of his then girlfriend, 13-year-old Abigail Estrada. He will head to trial on Monday.

The announcement of the trial date happened Friday morning at the Cameron County courthouse.
