Trial starts for man charged in double murder


Seven months after the shooting deaths of teenagers Shadi Najjar and Artem Ziberov, the trial has begun for one of the several men charged in their murder.

A total of four men, Jose Canales-Yanez, Edgar Garcia-Gaona, Roger Garcia and Rony Galicia, were arrested following the June 5th shooting, just one day before the two victims were supposed to graduate from Northwest High School.

Canales-Yanez is undergoing a bench trial where his future will be decided by Judge David Boynton.

The trial itself is expected to last until Wednesday.
