Murder trial in Sioux City stabbing pushed back to February

SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – The trial for a Dakota City, Nebraska, woman charged with stabbing to death a Sioux City woman is being pushed back once again.

Melissa Camargo-Flores has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the stabbing death of 24-year-old Kenia Alvarez-Flores on April 8.

Her trial was set to begin on Wednesday, September 18 in Woodbury County District Court.

That is now being pushed back to February 19, 2019.

This is the second time her trial has been pushed back since she was first scheduled to appear on July 10.

On April 8, police were called to the fatal stabbing at the 1200 block of West 14th Street, shortly before 8 a.m.

Police say there were ongoing problems between the two women, and they are not “family related.”

Alvarez-Flores was taken to Mercy Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead.

Camargo-Flores was pulled over by police and arrested.
