Sidney man's first degree murder trial to begin Monday

The week long first degree murder trial of 53 year old Larry Martinez will begin Monday in Cheyenne Cunty District Court in Sidney.

Martinez is also charged with use of a firearm to commit a felony regarding the shooting death of 30 year old Mandy Kerschman in July of 2012.

Court documents say Martinez told investigators he shot Kershman because of a text message from her that made him mad.
