ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A judge has ruled that three defendants charged in last year's death of a young New Mexico girl will be tried separately. Authorities say Victoria Martens was strangled to death on her 10th birthday last August before being dismembered and her remains set on fire. The girl's mother, the mother's boyfriend and the boyfriend's cousin each are charged jointly in the rape and murder case. Albuquerque police say the three suspects drugged, raped, killed and dismembered the child in an apartment. Police found the girl's body in a bathtub, wrapped in a smoldering blanket.
