The man who was sentenced to life in prison for the 2012 shooting death of a Sidney woman is appealing his conviction to the Nebraska Supreme Court.
57-year-old Larry Martinez was sentenced last September on convictions of 1st Degree Murder and Use of a Firearm to Commit a Felony.
In July, 2012 Martinez shot Mandy Kershman over a text message that she sent him. Last year he was found guilty by a Cheyenne County jury.
In his appeal, seven issues that arose during his court proceedings are cited; including overruling his motion to suppress his statements and his competency to stand trial.
The high court is slated to hear arguments in this case on Tuesday, October 4th.
