Eddie Marte, previously convicted for a brutal kidnapping and torture case in Geneva, is now on trial for the murder of a man from Elmira.

The trial, which began with jury selection this Monday in Chemung County, sees Marte accused alongside three others for the January 2021 crime.


The victim’s body was discovered three months later in a secluded part of Pennsylvania.

The incident for which Marte is currently serving a 15-year sentence involved the kidnapping of a Geneva man, who was subjected to a horrifying ordeal involving gunpoint threats, beatings, and burns.

This prior conviction links Marte to a pattern of violent crimes, with the Elmira murder trial highlighting the severity of his alleged actions.
