  • A Wahpeton man is accused of pointing a handgun at his cousin and pulling the trigger in a dispute over family matters.
     
    Thirty-five-year-old Rogelio Martinez is charged with attempted murder and terrorizing, and could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
     
    The Daily News reports that Rogelio Martinez asked Andres Martinez to come to his house on July 12. He allegedly approached his cousin's vehicle and put a gun to his face, pulling the trigger when his cousin grabbed the gun. Police say the bullet went through the vehicle door and grazed Andres Martinez's hand.
     
    Rogelio Martinez's defense attorney did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment Monday. Martinez is due in court for a preliminary hearing on Tuesday.
