Man accused of killing teen heads to trial

Man goes on trial for allegedly shooting teen

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A man accused of killing a teenager while he was trying to park his car in Allentown is heading to trial.

A preliminary hearing was held yesterday for Manuel Figueroa.

Officials said Figueroa shot and killed 19-year-old Daniel Velez while Velez was trying to park in the area of 7th and Gordon streets in September.

Officials said a witness saw Figueroa, but the defense said evidence will show he wasn't the one who pulled the trigger.
