Guam - The trial of Anthony Paul Mendiola kicked off today with testimony from the firefighters who responded to the April Nimitz Hill home invasion.

Also taking the stand, the victim herself, along with her husband, a Navy nuclear technician.

Before jurors, the victim was shown mugshots in which she placed Mendiola at the scene of the crime saying that although she couldn't confidently identify him due to memory loss, she got a "creepy" feeling and recognized his face.

Once a world class tri-athlete, the victim now has limited movement.

Although their trials were severed, Mendiola and co-defendant Raymond Tedtaotao are being tried simultaneously to allow the victim to return to California where she receives speech, occupational, and physical therapy.

Tedtaotao's trial is scheduled to resume on Tuesday.
