Once a new jury was seated, prosecutors wasted no time in calling witnesses in the murder trial of Saul Mendez, who is accused of fatally stabbing Tulia preacher, Ozell Craft Jr., last September.

Last week, a witness told jurors that Mendez had tried to kill her the same day as Craft's murder. Judge Brad Underwood declared a mistrial, saying that the witness' statement violated Mendez 's right to a fair trial.

Two witnesses were called to the stand Monday. Testimony will resume at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday.
