The man charged with the murder of Roberto Esquivel is claiming he did it "in self-defense."
On Wednesday, two witnesses refuted that claim. Collie Willard is accused of stabbing Esquivel to death in August of 2003. It happened during a party at an East Lubbock home, when Willard was supposed to be jailed for an unrelated charge, but was accidentally released due to a clerical error.
During court Wednesday, a number of witnesses from the party gave their account of what happened. The trial continues Thursday. If convicted, Willard could face life in prison.
