Escovedo murder trial begins

The prosecutor delivering opening arguments Monday in the murder trial of David Escovedo painted a grisly picture for jurors of Maxine Patsy Trujillo’s final moments and of her partially decomposed head being discovered on Feb. 14, 2011, six weeks after authorities believe she was killed.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Thomas Clayton told jurors  they’d hear testimony that Trujillo, 46, died from massive head trauma, a blow that was so severe that it cracked her skull.
