STAMFORD - A jury heard the first round of testimony today in the trial for one of the men accused of killing Greenwich developer Andrew Kissel.

Kissel's former chauffer, 49-year-old Carlos Trujillo, of Bridgeport, has been charged in the April 2006 murder.

Two employees of a moving company took the stand, describing the day they found Kissel's body in the basement of his rented Greenwich home.

Trujillo's family was absent from the courtroom. His cousin, Leonard Trujillo, has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and conspiracy to commit murder. He is expected to testify against his cousin later in the trial.
