Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub has decided to seek the death penalty against a man charged in the murder of a Sidney woman.

Larry Martinez, 53, Sidney, is charged with first-degree murder and use of a weapon in a felony in the July 18 shooting death 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 when he entered leave to amend information in the case.

A judge has given Schaub and defense attorney Kelly Breen six weeks to file information on the issue.
