Lawyer wants to withdraw from Sioux City murder case

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

A man accused of shooting and killing a Sioux City woman will be back in court on Tuesday.

The attorney for Fernando Jaimes-Martinez, 33, wants to withdraw himself from the case citing "irreconcilable differences that have destroyed the attorney/client relationship."

Jaimes-Martinez is charged with first degree murder, willful injury and intimidation with a dangerous weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

27-year old Karla Gonzalez died in September of 2012 after being hit in the head by a bullet. Police say Martinez fired randomly into a crowd of people after a disturbance at 1602 Villa Avenue in Sioux City.

Four other people were stabbed before the shooting, but no other charges have been filed in this case.

A plea and sentencing hearing for Jaimes-Martinez is set for February 11th.
