Nelson Anthony Jasso’s next pretrial date will be on March22nd and his first day of trial is set for April 9th.

Last February, Jasso was arrested for allegedly killing his landlord, Juan Antonio Gutierrez.

Gutierrez was found on Cortez Street with a gunshot wound to the chest.

However, investigators believed that to be untrue.

Jasso’s case is being heard in the 111th District Court.
