Alberto Quiroz Martinez appeared in Hermiston Circuit Court on Monday for a pre-trial conference related to the five-day-long alleged kidnapping of a Hermiston woman in April.
Judge Jeff Wallace filling in for Circuit Court Judge Dan Hill did not set a trial date in the hearing, but another pre-trial conference is set for July 9 at 1:15 p.m. due to the amount of discovery left for attorneys to sift through. Wallace said a trial date may be considered at the next hearing.
Deputy District Attorney Richard Bunney said there are 1,809 pages of discovery and 20 compact discs of information.
Martinez signed a document earlier in June waiving his right to a trial in 60 days. He is charged with four counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count each of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, fourth-degree assault and menacing.
Authorities said Martinez, now 29, of Hermiston kidnapped his former girlfriend, a 26-year-old woman from Hermiston, and fled with her the morning of April 26.
The woman was recovered and Martinez arrested at a cabin near Crescent Lake in northern Klamath County May 1 after a two-hour standoff.
Martinez was also convicted in January 2004 of kidnapping and attempted rape for the June 2003 kidnapping of a former girlfriend in Pendleton. He pleaded guilty as part of a plea agreement, served 7 1/2 years in prison and was on post-prison supervision. He is a registered sex-offender.
