Woman remains in custody on assault
An Indian Hills woman remains in custody on a variety of cases stemming from an incident where she held a knife to her boyfriend’s throat Jan. 26.
Cora Quin Martinez, 21, is facing a misdemeanor in connection with her arrest last April 30.
Prosecutors said that Martinez was arrested for showing up at the boyfriend’s home in the middle of the night while intoxicated.
“She’s continuing to drink and make threats,” prosecutor A.J. Hames said, arguing that her being free could result in the victim winding up dead. “Her conduct is extremely dangerous.”
Martinez agreed that she had a problem with alcohol, but said the victim has bailed her out of jail several times.
“He’s been waiting outside for me every time,” she said.
She is facing a 1-6-year sentence and a $5,000 fine at her sentencing May 18.
