Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News
GERING, Neb. (AP) _ A Scottsbluff man has pleaded not guilty to charges in connection to the stabbing death of a Scottsbluff woman on Dec. 31. The trial for 64-year-old Lucio Munoz was set Friday for May.
Munoz was arrested last month in Bradley, Illinois, after he was charged on suspicion of first-degree murder in an arrest warrant.
The body of 48-year-old Melissa May was found the morning of Jan. 3 after officers went to check on her welfare. Authorities say they believe Munoz used a knife to kill May on Dec. 31.
Munoz is being held at the Scotts Bluff County jail on a $2 million bond.
