By Bay City News—

An Alameda woman has pleaded no contest to first-degree murder in connection with the fatal shooting a man in an RV parked in front of a home in Oakland two years ago.

Victoria Martinez, 23, entered her plea on Tuesday for the death of Curtis Williams. Curtis was killed shortly before 11 p.m. on July 5, 2012 in the 2400 block of 24th Avenue.

Martinez faces a state prison term of 25 years to life in state prison when she's sentenced by Alameda County Superior Court Judge Paul Delucchi on March 13.
