WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Wichita County crime scene techs testified for day two of the murder trial for Willie Maurice Hervey, Jr. 

Hervey is accused of the shooting death of Mark Austin Hawkins during a drug deal in 2014. 

They said they found a gun, a white Dodge Durango and his clothing at an apartment in Airport Drive. The gun was found behind a stove while Sheriff deputies searched the home.

Sheriff deputies testified they found his phone number as a recent call in the victim's phone. They used a forensic phone-to-phone backup system, Cellebite, to locate Hervey to the crime scene around the time of the shooting.

Crime scene techs developed fingerprints on the Dodge Durango, they say was used in the drug deal, but those prints did not match either Hervey or the victim. On an interesting note, the techs testified no fingerprint testing was done on the gun found at the apartment.

Earlier in the day testimony got off to an emotional start. 

In the 89th District Court, the prosecution showed the jurors photos from the crime scene. 

Hawkins' mother, who was in the courtroom, burst into tears when the photos were shown. 

The photos showed Hawkins lying on the ground with a gunshot wound to his left side. 

Testimony will continue Thursday morning at the Wichita County Courthouse.

Hervey is facing five to 99 years or life in prison if found guilty.
