A 23-year-old Lubbock man is expected to take the stand Friday in the punishment phase of his murder trial.

Raymon Montelongo shot and killed his ex-wife Erika Perez, last March, in the parking lot of the Cingular call center on north University. He pleaded guilty to the murder on Monday. The punishment phase of his trial will enter its fourth day Friday.

On Thursday, a Lubbock police detective testified about the confession Montelongo gave police. He said Montelongo admitted to taking drugs and drinking the day of the shooting. He also said he apologized to Erika and told her he loved her before pulling the trigger. Afterwards he kissed her.

Erika Perez was 20 years at the time of her death. Montelongo faces up to life in prison.
