Trial set for man accused of stabbing to death neighbor

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Neb. (AP) - A February trial has been scheduled for a man accused of stabbing to death a neighbor at a northeast Nebraska apartment complex.

Court records say 49-year-old Rodolfo Castaneda-Morejon pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Madison County District Court in Madison. His trial is set to begin Feb. 12.

Castaneda-Morejon is accused of killing 39-year-old Yosvanis Velazquez Gomez at the Norfolk complex on Aug. 25.

Court records say Castaneda-Morejon told investigators he confronted Gomez about an inappropriate text message sent to Castaneda-Morejon's girlfriend, suspecting the two were having a secret relationship. The records also say Castaneda-Morejon acknowledged stabbing Velazquez Gomez several times.
