New DNA evidence being presented in a Lubbock courtroom may give two convicted killers a chance at freedom.

Alberto Sifuentes and Jesus Ramirez are serving life prison terms for the 1996 murder of a Littlefield convenience clerk. Monday, testimony got underway to determine if the men should get a new trial.

Angelina Cruz was shot at the Jolly Roger convenience store in Littlefield in 1996. A Dallas law firm is now presenting what it claims is new evidence including an alibi witness, the confession of two other men, and physical evidence connecting the new suspects to the scene of the crime.
