Horn murder trial

A judge in Brownsville on Thursday set a January trial date for 20-year-old Ernesto Ivan Martinez, accused of the grisly murder of Barry Horn, director of the Brownsville Art Museum on the morning before the museum’s annual gala last year.  Martinez pled not guilty at his arraignment in Feruary, but a judge in May ruled that a videotaped confession obtained by police in which Martinez admits to stabbing the museum director, claiming he was drunk and angry because Horn had raped him two weeks previously, will be allowed during trial.
