The murder trial of Armando Sandoval continued in a Lubbock courtroom Tuesday.

30-year-old Sandoval is charged with the stabbing death of his common-law wife Christina Moreno. Sandoval is accused of stabbing the 26-year-old Moreno on March 17th, 2003 following a domestic dispute. Tuesday in court Armando's sister testified that Armando came to her house after he killed Moreno looking for a gun to kill himself and she called police.

Sandoval claims the murder was in self defense, but according to those who took the stand today, Sandoval told them he killed Moreno because she was cheating on him. The trial continues Wednesday. If convicted, Sandoval faces up to life in prison.
