Amarillo, Texas - The man authorities believe chased down a teen and then murdered him is on trial, starting Tuesday, October 5th.

32-year-old David Anaya is in a Potter County courtroom, charged with shooting 18-year-old Eric Mireles in May of 2009.

Anaya was on the run for months following the incident and was considered one of the area's most dangerous fugitives.

If convicted, he could face up to 99 years behind bars and a fine of up to $10,000.
