Do you have a roof or overhang above ? Lots of times home owners think windows are the source of water intrusion when in fact its a roof or the wall itself.

Yes, a roof is above, will check tomorrow outside for any water entry possibility. Thanks for pointing this possibility.

The issue is from above. Roof or sidewall is likely the issue.

Need to see a picture from further back to see the structure.

You can see the staining on the J channel and capping. The water is coming through from above.

Thats not the window. The water is coming from above and going behind the fascia board.
