New Orleans, La.
The trial of a former BP drilling engineer charged with deleting text messages and voicemails about the company's response to a 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has begun in New Orleans.
Jurors heard opening statements Tuesday from a Justice Department prosecutor who vowed to prove that Mix was trying to destroy evidence when he deleted hundreds of text messages to and from a supervisor and a BP contractor.
But a defense lawyer said Mix wasn't trying to hide anything from a grand jury probing the nation's worst offshore oil spill. Mix has pleaded not guilty.
