El Centro convicted murderer files for appeal


EL CENTRO, CA - The defense attorneys for the man recently convicted of killing a local man two years ago have filed an appeal.

El Centro Court officials say the appeal was filed last week.

Gerardo Montes received two 25-years to life in prison sentences in the shooting death of Adrian Chee in 2010.

Chee's body was found in a field in Winterhaven near the Quechan Indian reservation.

A judge is set to review the appeal next month.
