A Staten Island man who beat a murder rap more than a decade ago is back in the can after surveillance camera footage showed him using a gun to get even - permanently - with a neighbor, police said.
Martinez, seeking to avenge the disgusting slight of his wife, found Francis inside his apartment building on Park Hill Ave. in Stapleton about 2:30 a.m. on Sept. 3.
He shot Francis a dozen times, a police source said.
But he picked a bad spot for murder: the entire incident was filmed on the building's surveillance camera, authorities said.
Police collared Martinez Wednesday on Marcy Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, after he once again turned to violence to punish a man who had wronged a woman in his life. This time, Martinez stabbed a man in the neck with an ice pick after he had slapped Martinez's female cousin, a police source said.
Martinez was arrested in the summer of 1999 for allegedly shooting David Walker, 19, to death on a basketball court at Staten Island's Stapleton Houses.
He was set free after a grand jury empaneled under then-District Attorney William Murphy opted not to indict him.
Martinez now faces charges of murder and weapons possession, said a spokesman for Staten Island District Attorney Daniel Donovan Jr.
