TOPEKA, Kan. — Shawnee County District Judge Bill Ossmann bound Daisha Corrina Butler over for trial Wednesday on one charge of intentional and premeditated first-degree murder linked to the July 3 shooting death of Nevaeh Martinez, a 17-year-old Lincoln resident.

Butler, 22, was arrested early July 4 in connection with the death of Martinez, who was found in the street suffering from a gunshot wound to the back of her head late July 3, said Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay. She died July 4.
