The trial against a Harlingen man accused of stabbing his wife to death began on Tuesday.
Pascual de la Rosa held his head and looked down as a sheriffs deputy read the accused murder's own written testimony of how he stabbed his common-law wife Norma de la Rosa at least five times. The 40 year-old man is accused of stabbing his wife to death in August 2008 after an argument at a camper trailer near the Harlingen Sports Complex off of Juanita road.
Norma de la Rosa was 38 years-old and is survived by four children.
