District Attorney Jan Scully announced that Edgar Martinez was sentenced by the Honorable Cheryl Chun Meegan to 50 years to life in prison after a jury convicted the defendant of first degree murder and the allegation that the defendant personally discharged a firearm causing death.

In the early morning hours of September 8, 2007, Martinez became involved in an argument with Jose Segura at a house on Van Maren Lane in Citrus Heights. During the argument, Martinez shot Mr. Segura four times, killing him. Martinez then fled to Mexico.

Citrus Heights Police Department detectives worked diligently to identify and locate Martinez following the crime. He was extradited back to the United States to stand trial in May, 2009.
