Acenette Belinda Huerta, 38
TX, Laredo, Webb Co.
Attacked: August 11, 2003
Acenette died 11 days after entering a hospital for a slash wound to her neck that police say her common-law husband, Santiago Martinez Jr., 40, inflicted during a domestic dispute.
Martinez had a history of beating Acenette and was found that day by police covered in blood and holding a box-cutter.
After pleading guilty, Martinez was given a 60-year sentence.
