10-Year-Old Viciously Raped And Killed - Cops Horrified By Who Was Responsible For The Attack

A little girl in Albuquerque, New Mexico was excited about her birthday party, say neighbors, because a family friend was taking her out for a manicure and pedicure. Sadly, before she could even celebrate her tenth birthday, she was brutalized and killed in her own home.

Victoria Martens was drugged with methamphetamine, sexually assaulted and stabbed to death in her apartment. Suspects include her mother, her mother's boyfriend and his cousin.

Police responded to a call for aggravated battery and found Michelle Martens, 35, waiting for them. She told them that 'someone killed her daughter' and was still in her apartment.

Police knocked and Fabian Gonzales, 31, answered. He had blood-stained shorts and told police he was cleaning himself up. Gonzales' cousin, Jessica Kelley, 31, slammed and locked the door.

Kelley jumped from the apartment's balcony and attempted to flee. Police heard the fire alarm go off and broke into the apartment. It was full of smoke. They searched for Victoria and found her body in the bathroom.

All three adults have been arrested and charged with child abuse resulting in death, kidnapping, tampering with evidence, conspiracy, and other charges. Gonzales has also been charged with criminal sexual penetration of a minor.

According to police, Martens shows no remorse for her part in her daughter's death.

“This homicide is the most gruesome act of evil I have ever seen in my career,” Albuquerque Police Chief Gorden Eden Jr. said in a statement. “A complete disregard of human life and betrayal by a mother.”

Laura Bobbs, a close friend of the family and a minister, arrived at the apartment complex with gifts, ready to pick up Victoria for her birthday party spa day. She was devastated to learn about the child's death.
