A 54-year-old Sidney man has been convicted for the murder of a Sidney woman in 2012.
On Thursday a Cheyenne County jury found Larry Martinez guilty of first-degree murder and use of a firearm.
Authorities say Martinez shot 30-year-old Mandy Kershman on July 18, 2012, at the home of a friend because he was angry over a text message she had sent him.
Martinez faces life in prison. His sentencing is set for May 7.
