Fabian Gonzales trial set for January 2022

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The trial for Fabian Gonzales is set to begin on January 3, 2022, according to court documents filed Monday.

His trial is expected to last three weeks – through January 21, 2022.

Gonzales is charged in the 2016 death of 10-year-old Victoria Martens. The murder charge was dropped, but Gonzales is still charged with child abuse and tampering with evidence. He was released from jail in November 2019.

He was in court just last week for a hearing to determine what evidence can be heard during his trial.
