The trial starts tomorrow for the first of three men charged in the death of an East Texas mother.

Dennis Montrell Bendy is charged with the murder of Briana Young on July 30, 2013.

According to police, 20-year-old Briana Raquel Young of Tyler was killed when she and her three-year-old son were caught in crossfire in Tyler's P.T. Cole Park. Investigators were told that gunfire broke out at the park when two men exchanged fire with a car on Mockingbird Street.

Police believe that Bendy accompanied Rakheem Lamone Goldstein to the park, looking for a rival gang member.

Goldstein and another man, Elisha Juwan Williams, are still awaiting trial on first degree murder charges.
