MURRAY, Ky. (WSIL) -- A Kentucky man is set to appear before a circuit court to face murder charges next month.
A grand jury indicted 22-year old Julius Sotomayor on murder charges last Friday, according to the Calloway County Circuit Clerk's Office. Sotomayor is accused of killing 21-year old Sarah Townsend of Farmville, Virginia.
