Her boyfriend, the shooter, Mark Hice says they mistook Martinez for someone who had threatened him in the past. Six people were arrested in connection to the crime. Garcia was facing murder charges but as part of a plea deal on Wednesday, pled to tampering with evidence and conspiracy charges.

With it, comes a sentence of seven and a half years probation. She will also have to pay restitution but that amount has yet to be determined.
