FAIRFIELD — Sidney Wilson put his two kids to bed then went with their mother into the garage of her Cambridge Drive home in Vacaville, where he allegedly shot and killed her a few minutes later.

One of two other children in the home at the time Victoria Corral was killed took the witness stand Friday during the first day of testimony in Wilson’s murder trial.

The girl, who was 17 at the time of the Sept. 8, 2011, shooting, said she went to the garage after she heard her mom shout and heard a loud bang. After opening the garage door, she said she witnessed Wilson shoot her mom. The girl said she ran back inside the house, gathered up her three siblings, took them into a bedroom and then called police. While on the phone she heard another shot, she testified.

Wilson’s defense attorney focused his questions to the girl on Wilson’s panicky demeanor immediately after the shooting.

Wilson, 35, has pleaded not guilty.

The second day of testimony is scheduled Wednesday.
