Cop Charged With Endangerment and Strangulation of Woman and Her 10-Month-Old Baby

DELAWARE — In March of 2013, Officer Andrel Martinez was charged for stalking and threatening a girl who had broken up with him.




He used his position as an officer to access the Justice Information System to see files and history about not only her, but her friends and family as well.

He got away with it and was allowed to keep his job with only a suspension, and the charge was dropped.

Now Officer Andrel is back in the news again.

He has been charged for strangling a woman in front of her 10-month-old baby, reports say.

He has also been charged with second-degree unlawful imprisonment, menacing, and endangering the welfare of a child.

The extent to which the baby was abused is not yet known. But the woman, who was his new wife, appears to have been severely strangled.

Officer Martinez was sent to Sussex Correctional Institution on $8,750 cash bond, according to reports.

His wife reported that she was being abused by the officer domestically.

Officer Martinez remains suspended without pay and benefits — whether he will be convicted is an open question.

Officer Martinez did not return phone messages left for him by the press.

    It has been known for decades that spousal abuse and child abuse is higher among those in positions of authority, such as cops, attorneys, judges. This is one reason it has taken so long to get domestic abuse laws enforced – the cops cover for each other, and others they know. This particular thug was already caught and allowed to come back to the uniform and a badge. Are they going for 3 strikes and he’s out, or is twice enough?

      they will wait until he kills someone. Then they will hug it out after they talk him down from his threatened suicide then take him to BK for a burger on the way to Jail.
