The man charged with the murder of 13-year Alex Torres is heading back to trial.

David Davila went on trial in late September 2018, but the case ended in a mistrial.

He’s now scheduled to go back on trial in the 105th District Court on Jan. 22.

Yesterday marked the four-year anniversary of Alex Torres’ death. The Haas Middle School student was shot and killed outside his home at the Treyway Apartments, 2022 Treyway Terrace.
