Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub says he will seek the death penalty against a man charged in the shooting death of a Sidney woman.
Fifty-three-year-old Larry Martinez is charged with first-degree murder and use of a weapon in a felony in the July killing of 30-year-old Mandy Kershman.
Police say he shot Kershman because was angry over a text message from her.
Schaub spelled out his intentions during a hearing on Wednesday.
A judge has given Schaub and defense attorney Kelly Breen six weeks to file information on the issue.
