SACRAMENTO, California – It’s been over six years in the making, but the trial for a brutal murder that took the lives of a 21-year-old Filipino-American and his infant son in South Sacramento has begun.

Donald Ortez-Lucero and Christopher Strong are accused of shooting Filipino-American Sean Aquitania Senior, 21, and his 7-month-old infant son Sean Junior in September 2007.

Meanwhile, a star witness was taken into police custody in Mexico earlier this week.

Frederick Dallas Gill is believed to be a drug dealer who lived in the home where the shooting occurred.

Aquitania was believed to be visiting his friend Gill while Ortez-Lucero and Strong were allegedly robbing Gill’s home during a drug transaction.
