The victim's 10-year-old son was an actual eyewitness to the murder, watching the event unfold through the crack of the bathroom door. After the killing, investigators say Martinez fled the scene with his sibling. Reports say the victim was a victim of domestic violence for years and wanted to end the relationship.
