An Ellendale man received a 35-year-prison sentence for murdering another man. Deputy Attorneys General Susan Schmidhauser and Stephen Welch secured the sentence for 36-year-old Don Martinez. In July 2017, Martinez fatally shot Kevin King in the parking lot of the Silver Lake Estates housing complex in Milford during an argument. In December 2018, Martinez pled guilty to Murder Second Degree, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, and Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited. A Superior Court judge sentenced Martinez, barred from having a gun because of previous felony convictions on Burglary, Aggravated Menacing, and Conspiracy charges, to 35 years in prison, followed by 6 months of either home confinement or work release, then 2 years of probation. Milford Police Department investigated the case, with DOJ social worker Ester Powell and paralegal Sue Balik assisting with the prosecution.
