ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Albuquerque police are charging three people in the death of a 10-year-old girl - a killing called "unspeakable" by the state's governor. Police say charges are being filed against 35-year-old Michelle Martens, 31-year-old Fabian Gonzales, and 31-year-old Jessica Kelley. Police tell the Albuquerque Journal that the child was injected with methamphetamine, sexually assaulted and then stabbed or strangled. The paper describes Martens as the child's mother and Gonzales as the mother's boyfriend.
