Trial underway for man accused of killing 3 people
EDINBURG - Witnesses took the stand on Wednesday in the trial of the man charged with the deaths of three people on an Edinburg road two almost two years ago.
21-year-old Luis Javier Gonzalez is facing three counts of intoxication manslaughter and a single count of intoxication assault with a vehicle.
Back in August of 2018, when he was 19, the car he was driving slammed head on into another vehicle. Three people in that car were killed and a fourth person was hurt.
During opening statements prosecutors told the jury Gonzalez was operating the vehicle that night while intoxicated under control of a dangerous drug, but a defense attorney countered saying evidence will show Gonzalez was not intoxicated.
