EL PASO, Texas - An El Paso woman is accused of killing her boyfriend by pinning him with her car at a Lower Valley gas station, authorities said Monday.

Monica Isabel Martinez, 44, was being held on a million-dollar bond for murder at the El Paso County Detention Facility downtown.

Police said the death happened last Thursday night at the Valero gas station at 629 S. Yarbrough, where officers found 39–year old Jorge Luis Vasquez unresponsive and rushed him to Del Sol Hospital - where he later died.

"Doctors did not suspect foul play due to a lack of apparent injuries on the victim," said Sgt. Enrique Carrillo.

But investigators indicated they soon found evidence that resulted in the medical examiner declaring the death a homicide and led to Martinez being arrested.

"Surveillance footage obtained from the store by detectives revealed an argument between the couple in the parking lot," Carrillo explained. "The offender is seen in a vehicle driving towards the victim who was on foot, pinning him between the vehicle and a support pillar on the gas island, after which the victim collapses."

  1. fero2a always making jokes whenever someone is killed in this city. The true definition of an online troll. I wonder where all his rage comes from. Bad parenting? Mental illness? Not being attractive to women? Feared by children? Hmmmmm

  2. Some people are always against the freedom of speech unless they agree with a comment and then they wonder why nobody likes them. Beyond me why these people even read peoples comments anyway if they don’t like what they read. Maybe they are the true definition of trolls with the real mental illness or not attractive to women or men, and feared by children and pets and their own mamma? Maybe so.

      1. Yes madmike. The only problem is is that it is a virus itself and continues to babel on everything it does not understand. But there is hope. A vaccine is on the way.
