Early
Wednesday morning, police received a call about a disturbance inside a
unit at the Arroyo Villas Apartment Complex on Irving Boulevard. 
Officers
who responded to the address came upon a gruesome crime scene in the
bathroom, said Albuquerque Police Chief Gorden Eden. 
‘This
is a horrific tragedy for our community,’ Eden told reporters. ‘I want
to assure the public that we will pursue justice and we will make sure
that we exhaust every resource into this investigation.’
By
Thursday morning, a makeshift shrine for 10-year-old Victoria had
emerged underneath a tree at the apartment complex — with relatives and
friends leaving flowers, balloons, stuffed animals and lit candles.
Martinez
said in a statement the abuse and killing of Victoria Martens ‘is
unspeakable and justice should come down like a hammer.’

she is released. No details were disclosed about why she was
hospitalized.
This afternoon, Michelle Martens and Fabian Gonzales made their initial court appearances and were ordered held on $1million bond each. Neither entered a plea. 
According

Gonzales drugged the girl so he could ‘calm her down’ and have sex with
her. She said Kelley held her hand over the child’s mouth and she
stabbed the girl in the stomach after Gonzales had choked her.

One
of the police officers who arrived at the apartment found the girl’s
body in a bathroom, rolled up in a blanket that had been set on fire.
The officer put it out.
Some
of her remains were found in a plastic bag in a hamper near the
kitchen, reported The Albuquerque Journal, citing court records.  
Albuquerque
Public Schools said Thursday that Victoria Martens was a student at
Petroglyph Elementary School on Albuquerque’s west side.
In a statement, the district said school officials were having hard time wrapping their heads around around the sickening case.
People who knew the slain child said she was well-liked and friendly. 
Christine Zamora said she taught Victoria gymnastics every Saturday and that she came to class happy.
Neighbor John Madrid says he often saw the girl at the pool and that she was excited about the start of the new school year.
Fabian
Gonzales has an arrest record stretching back to 2004, including a
felony child abuse charge, driving while intoxicated and resisting
arrest. It was unclear whether he was convicted of most charges, but he
did plead no contest to a charge of child abandonment.
Kelley’s
arrest record includes battery, domestic violence and drug charges —
most of them dismissed. Online court records show no past criminal
history in New Mexico for Martens.
Mugshots
of Martens and Gonzales released by police showed them with bruises on
their faces. In his statement in the criminal complaint, Gonzales said
his cousin hit him and Martens with an iron.

Laura Bobbs, a local minister and close family friend of the victim, told the Albuquerque Journal
she was planning Victoria’s birthday celebration for when the child was
supposed to arrive home from school Wednesday afternoon. They were
going to have pedicures and manicures and eat cake.
Bobbs broke down sobbing and yelling Wednesday outside the apartment complex as detectives investigated.
‘Who does this to a little child?’ she asked. ‘Oh Jesus. Oh what evil.’
