Hearing set for woman accused in murder of 10-year-old girl

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.—A suspect in the murder of 10-year-old Victoria Martens is expected in court Thursday for a hearing regarding what evidence can be used in her trial next month.
Jessica Kelley’s defense had filed a motion to dismiss the charge of child abuse resulting in death but then asked to withdraw that motion.
The prosecution responded Wednesday saying this shows the state has enough evidence to prove Kelley’s guilt and want the decision to go to a jury.
Victoria Marten’s mother, Michelle Martens, has taken a plea deal in the case. Another suspect, Fabian Gonzales, is awaiting trial.
Another unidentified suspect in the case has not yet been located by authorities.
