(WTNH) — Connecticut State Police are on the lookout for a Bridgeport man who skipped the first day of his manslaughter trial.

Cesar D. Martinez failed to present himself at the Fairfield County Judicial District Court on Tuesday.

A re-arrest warrant has been issued for Martinez on a first degree manslaughter charge and unlawful restraint. His bond is now set at $750,000 with an unlimited extradition.

The 31-year-old is 5’05” tall and weighs 140 pounds. He has a vertical scar from the left side of his scalp to his left jawline. Police say that Martinez currently has no known vehicle. He was last known to operate a 1993 Acura Integra with a Connecticut registration 889ZGH.

Anyone with information is asked to contact State Police based at Troop-G at 203-696-2568.

If you see Martinez, do not confront him. Call police instead.
