Garden City Man Pleads In Sisters Death

KSCB News - March 22, 2011 8:17 am

A Garden City man has changed his plea
in the stabbing death of his sister.
54-year-old Luis Montoya, on Monday pleaded no contest in the death of his sister, Maria
Montoya. He previously had pleaded innocent, and was scheduled to
go to trial April 18.
Assistant Finney County attorney Tamara Hicks says Montoya will
be sentenced April 25.
Montoya was arrested in August 2009 when police were called to
the home he shared with his sister and found the 55-year-old woman
dead. An autopsy showed wounds to her head, chest, face and arms.
Family members have testified the two argued repeatedly about
responsibilities in the home.
