Jurors at the first trial in the execution-style slaying of three friends in a New Jersey schoolyard could hear compelling testimony Wednesday.

The sole survivor of the 2007 attack in Newark could take the witness stand.

The prosecution says the woman, who was 19 at the time, was sexually assaulted, cut with a knife and shot in the head when she ran screaming.

Rodolfo Godinez is the first of six defendants to go to trial in the killings.

Defense attorney Roy Greenman told jurors during opening statements Tuesday that Godinez was at the scene. But he said his client didn't participate in the attacks and wasn't identified by the survivor.
