A man has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a woman during a neighborhood fight in Sioux City.
Thirty-three-year-old Fernando Jaimes-Martinez is accused of firing a gun into a crowd and killing 27-year-old Karla Gonzalez on Sept. 22.
Prosecutors filed trial information on Tuesday, which includes the murder charge and three other charges.
Police say there was a large fight outside Jaimes-Martinez's house. He allegedly fired a gun into a group of adults and children retreating from the house. Gonzales was hit in the head.
Police haven't said what caused the fight.
A message for Jamies-Martinez's attorney, Michael Williams of the public defender's office, wasn't returned on Wednesday.
