A jury at Mold Crown Court have heard how a takeaway delivery driver was "punched, kicked and stabbed" to death as he went about his work in Meliden, Denbighshire last October.
Gabor Peter Sarkozi, a Hungarian man living in Rhyl, was involved in two separate attacks on the night he died.
The extent of injuries was such that death was inevitable. He was taken to Glan Clwyd Hospital but in reality he died on the street at the scene of the attack."
In the Crown's opening statement, the jury heard Mr Sarkozi had agreed to cover the evenings shift after a colleague had been taken ill.
Gary Bland, 42 and his nephew James Siree 22, both from Rhyl have been charged with murder.
They deny the charges.
The trial is expected to last three weeks.
James Siree and Gary Bland are told they will serve a minimum of 18 years in jail each for the murder of Gabor Sarkozi in Rhyl last year.
Two men from Rhyl have been found guilty of murdering a Hungarian delivery driver in the street.
