It was an emotional scene in the courtroom as the Tony Gonzalez murder trial began.
Gonzalez, 26, is accused of shooting 23-year-old Carl Cunningham Jr. 7 times in Warwick in January 2012. It is alleged that Gonzalez burst into his ex-girlfriend, Patricia Dalomba's home to confront her new boyfriend Matthew Chivers but instead shot Cunningham and fled the scene.
On Thursday the state and the defense made their opening arguments in trial. The state maintained that Gonzalez killed an innocent bystander while the defense made the case that the prosecution's witnesses are not being honest.
"If Patricia Dalomba is talking, she's lying," said Bryan Owens, an attorney for Gonzalez.
As part of that state's case the dramatic 911 call that was made shortly after Cunningham was shot was played for the jurors.
Loud screams could be heard from Patricia Dalomba and Matthew Chivers, who were saying their friend had been shot.
Several members of Cunningham's family left the courtroom as the 911 call was played.
Patricia Dalomba, the woman at the center of the "love-triangle" will take the stand on Friday.
