The autopsy of a 10-year old Albuquerque, New Mexico, girl, who was raped, murdered and dismembered as her mother looked on, shows she suffered more fully than was first understood.
Victoria Martens, who died of strangulation on August 23, was sexually abused prior to her killing, according to The Albuquerque Journal. A newly-released autopsy report showed the girl had a sexually transmitted disease and was drunk when she died, the day after her 10th birthday.

The girl’s mother, Michelle Martens, 35, allegedly said she enjoyed watching the rape, strangulation, stabbing and dismemberment of her daughter, carried out by her boyfriend Fabian Gonzales, 32, and his cousin, Jessica Kelly, 32. The girl was also dismembered after her death, wrapped in a blanket and burnt.
Shortly after the killing the mother reportedly had sex with Gonzales. Later, Martens told investigators her daughter died from an overdose of meth. The girl had no meth in her system at the time of her death.
Martens also claimed that Kelley, who is a convicted rapist, had attacked her in the middle of the night, according to the Daily Mail.
“Jessica comes into our bedroom and asks me if I believe in God. She kept hitting me, hitting me, hitting me, punching.”
Martens said Kelley then shouted that Victoria was dead. However, she changed her story during the course of the investigation, saying that Gonzales and Kelley threatened to kill her if she told authorities about their role in the girl’s death.

The mother finally admitted to police that she watched her daughter’s rape and murder and listened as she begged for mercy.
She also admitted to searching online for men to have sex with her daughter. Two men besides Gonzales reportedly had sex with the young girl in the previous six months.
Martens, Kelley and Gonzales are all in jail, awaiting October court action, according to the The Albuquerque Journal.
