Man found guilty in ‘Hell’s Gate’ murder trial

A 22-year-old man was found guilty Friday in the 2015 shooting death of another man.

Jurors deliberated for just 90 minutes before returning a guilty verdict against Robert Martinez.

Police said Martinez lured Steven Cerna, 22, to a drainage ditch known as “Hell’s Gate” in February 2015 before shooting him.

The case was cold until a tip by the defendant’s uncle in 2017 led to Martinez’s arrest.

Martinez could face a maximum punishment of life in prison.
