The trial begins this week for a Border Patrol agent accused of capital murder and drug trafficking.

Border Patrol Agent Joel Luna, along with his two brothers and two associates, are charged in the beheading death of Jose Francisco Salacios Paz, the Texas Tribune reports. 

Prosecutors say Paz was killed because he knew too much.

Jury selection begins Tuesday morning.

Cameron County Assistant District Attorney Gus Garza expressed optimism that there’s enough evidence to convict Luna and his brothers.

“The state alleges that this group, the brothers, were conducting a criminal enterprise, of moving drugs, selling drugs. Later on, we also learned that they were moving weapons, and Franky was going to snitch on them,” Garza told The Texas Tribune. “In order to silence him and not have their enterprise disclosed to law enforcement — that’s why he was killed.”
