    Opening statements have begun in the trial of a Vietnam native charged with murdering two brothers and dumping their bodies into a Philadelphia river.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer reports prosecutors on Thursday said 44-year-old Tam Minh Le had a business relationship with 31-year-old Vu "Kevin" Huynh and his 28-year-old brother Viet. Prosecutors say the brothers sold large amounts of marijuana.

    Prosecutors say Le and his associates in August 2014 tortured and stabbed the brothers along with another man who tried to deliver some of the $100,000 they owed Le.

    All three were dumped into the Schuylkill River. Their faces covered with duct tape and their legs were weighted down with cement. One man survived.

    Defense attorney Daniel Conner told jurors Le works in construction and wasn't involved.
