AUSTIN (KXAN) - The trial for the case of an elderly, blind woman who was found beaten to death just moments after she left a party got underway Tuesday.
Prosecutors called upon DNA and forensic experts to connect Billy Ray Byers to the scene where Rosemary Borges was found dead in October 2011.
A stain found on Byers' shoe could prove key in the murder trial that could potentially send Byers to jail for life.
The state is expected to call upon investigators and eye witnesses who were at a party that both Borges and Byers attended the night of the murder.
Police say Byers followed Borges, a 65-year-old woman who walked with a cane and was legally blind, when she left the party and returned a little later with blood on his hands .
Byers lived just a short distance away from the South Congress apartment where Borges lived and where the party was taking place.
