Santa Fe man to serve two life sentences
March 06, 2017 08:41 PM
A man convicted of killing two teens in October 2014 over drug money was sentenced in court Monday.
Family members talked about the victims, Anamarie Ojeda and Venancio Cisneros, but Martinez showed very little emotion in the courtroom.
Authorities say the Martinez shot Ojeda and Cisneros in a parked car over a drug debt.
The defense asked the Judge Glen Ellington to consider Martinez’s age and lack of prior violent history into account during the sentencing. Judge Ellington instead spoke of the severity of the crime.
“We have a problem in this community. Our children are killing each other,” said Judge Ellington. “Even in a world of drugs and crime, even though this might make sense in that world, even in that world the killing of a child is not ok.”
Martinez will not be eligible to leave prison for at least 60 years.
