Judge postpones Fabian Gonzales trial


Fabian Gonzales’ trial in the case of Victoria Martens murder has been postponed. 

Gonzales’ trial was supposed to begin in less than three weeks on charges of tampering with evidence and child abuse resulting in death. 

However, Judge Charles Brown put the trial on hold because prosecutors are appealing his decision to exclude crucial evidence from the trial. 

Wednesday, Judge Brown ruled the criminal drug history for Gonzales cannot be used. 

Prosecutors argued that lifestyle led to the girl’s murder. 

Documents revealed Gonzales had someone out to get him over a gang dispute, and they strangled Victoria.
