Prosecutors wrapped up day two of testimony in the Joel Salinas murder trial.

Salinas is accused of stabbing Candido Bello-Rivera to death in October 2004.

Today the victim's brother says he watched as Salinas callously walked out of his apartment and put a knife in his brother's heart.

Later the medical examiner confirmed that Bello-Rivera died from a single stab wound to the chest.

Testimony in this trial will continue Thursday.
