DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A jury in Dallas is hearing a capital murder trial that dates back to 1988.

57-year old George Guo of Houston is accused of the strangulation, rape and murder of Doctor Katherine Bascone.

Bascone remained in a irreversible coma for 30-years before she died of injuries last year.

Her death allowed police to open a rape kit and use DNA, which they say led to Guo.

If convicted, he faces an automatic life prison term.
