Burns Sentencing Date

The sentencing date is set for the man convicted of killing a Cedar Rapids teen more than 40 years ago. A judge will sentence 66-year old Jerry Burns of Manchester on April 17th at the Linn County Courthouse. Last month, a jury convicted Burns of stabbing and killing 18-year-old Michelle Martinko in the Westdale Mall parking lot in December 1979. The defense argued investigators mishandled the evidence used to convict Burns. A DNA match from a straw Burns used at a restaurant led to his arrest in 2018.
