New details emerge in murder case

We're learning more today about a Lexington murder that left an apartment maintenance man dead.

Investigators testified Thursday morning on their case against Latarra Martin. Martin is charged with murder in the death of Jeffrey Wilburn.

The maintenance man was shot to death back in March at Lakeshore Apartments in Lexington.

The detective who interviewed Martin shortly after the shooting says she admitted to pulling the trigger and says she did it because the victim tried to steal her music.

Martin has been ruled competent to stand trial but there are still questions as to her mental state at the time of the murder.
