Somebody needs to erase that grin - preferably permanently.
GILBERT, AZ -- Police said A 19-year-old father was arrested Friday for first degree murder and child abuse, after the death of his two-month-old baby.
Sgt. Mark Marino with the Gilbert Police Department said that on November 8th, Ricky Martinez reported that his baby fell off a bed, when he went to change the infant's diaper. Martinez was with other family members watching football games at the time.
Martinez said he took the baby to a nearby fire station and could not get in so he called 911.
The infant was taken to a hospital where it remained on life support until it died early Thursday morning.
Police said it was determined the injuries were not consistent with what Martinez told them and that Martinez caused the baby's serious head injuries.
According to police, the couple also has an 18-month-old child and CPS is involved.
Investigators are interviewing the family members who were at the home on Sunday.

The autopsy on a 2-month-old Gilbert girl who died as a result of a suspected beating by her father showed the victim had earlier injuries.
Lilliana Martinez had five healing rib fractures on the left side along the spine, and two on each side of the upper chest, according to a report released this week by Gilbert police.
Almost from the beginning, Gilbert police, firefighters and doctors suspected something more was involved in the baby's death.
From the point her parents, Ricky Martinez, 20, and Aurora Ascencio, 19, sought help at 1:11 p.m. Nov. 8 at Fire Station #7, to when their infant girl died in the hospital four days later, authorities were focused on the girl's father.
Ricky Martinez told investigators Lilliana fell onto a carpeted floor after rolling off an 18-inch-tall bed on the second story of his parent's home .
However, the recently released 58-page police report states the young girl suffered skull fractures from as many as four blows to the head, and had nine healing rib fractures.
The report details investigators' interviews with Martinez and Ascencio, in which the engaged couple said they were watching the Arizona Cardinals football game on TV with their 18-month-old son, Martinez's 13-year-old sister and Lilliana in her car seat on the couch.
Martinez picked up the infant when she began to cry, the report states.
"For me when babies cry, I feel like I need to hurry up, to get it done because I don't like my son or daughter crying at all," Martinez told an investigator. "It bothers me emotionally, I feel for them. I'm really close to my son and daughter."
Martinez said he was in a hurry to change Lilliana's diaper, when he took her upstairs and laid her near the edge of the bed. He removed the soiled diaper, wiped her down and turned around to get a fresh diaper.
Before he could turn back, Martinez said Lilliana fall to the ground and heard a "crack."
"Right away you just see the bulge . . . but you see the bruises and I freaked out," Martinez said, noting a bump on his young daughter's head.
Ascencio told police she heard the fall from downstairs and thought their son had gotten into something, but he was found playing with shoes near the front door.
Suddenly, Martinez screamed for Ascencio to come upstairs because the child had fallen.
"She said Ricky looked scared and was yelling that they needed to take Lilliana to the hospital," Ascencio told police.
The mother put a fresh diaper on the child, put her in her car seat and they hurriedly left the home. Once inside the car, Martinez's mother told them to drive to the nearest fire station, about one mile away.
However, no one answered the door at the station at 215 N. Cooper Road. Martinez called 911.
"My daughter fell off the bed and her head is really (expletive) up," Martinez said. "Her eyes are kind of in back of her head. She's not alert at all, but she's breathing and making some noises."
More than four minutes passed before police and paramedics arrived on the scene.
Medical personnel were working on the infant when a fire captain pulled an officer aside.
"The fire captain stated, 'You need to get your people here for this' and expressed he felt the situation was very serious and the child's injury was not consistent, in his opinion, with the fall that was being described," the police report state.
When confronted with the fire captain's accusation of child abuse, Ascencio said "They aren't doctors!" and that they "can't come to that conclusion!"
Attending physicians at Maricopa County Medical center said the child's injuries were life-threatening as a result of subdural and subarachnoid hematomas from left and right frontal skull fractures.
Lilliana was removed from life support and pronounced dead at 6:40 a.m. Nov. 12.
An autopsy revealed multiple skull fractures "from multiple impacts, possibly as many as four," the report states.
Gilbert police arrested Martinez on Nov. 13 as he exited a Wells Fargo bank with Ascencio. Martinez again denied abusing his daughter when questioned further by police.
Ascencio continued to defend her fiancÚ.
"She described Ricky as being a very loving toward his kids," the report states. "She did not believe that he could intentionally hurt the kids."

I may be seeing more than there is there, but I think that guy may enjoy the "guy-time" in his local prison a little more than he'd openly admit.

really confused on this one. what must've he done? squeezed her [rib fractures]? slapped her around [skull fractures]? what about the mom? she get anything?
October 15th, 2011, 05:32 PM
He's SMILING in that first picture. That can't be his mugshot, can it?
I'm glad he's seen the sense in pleading guilty, the idiot IS guilty. The mother deserves some kind of punishment for standing by and allowing this asshole to torture her baby.
My granddaughter's name is Lilyana. Different spelling, but it makes my heart hurt.

I believe fractures near the spine of babies usually is a result of compression during shaking:
During a shaking episode, an infant is usually held around the thorax and shaken. When a perpetrator shakes, their hands can squeeze the child’s rib cage severely. Ribs, during shaking, commonly fracture at the posterior (connected to the spinal column) area, which is structurally their weakest area. They may also fracture at the lateral (side) areas of the ribs. http://www.e-radiography.net/radpath/n/non_accidenta_%20injury.htm
My daughter, when she was a baby fell from a height of 12 - 18 inches once onto a tiled floor and besides being scared, was not harmed. There is no way the fall he described would have caused those injuries.

From mom's FB/Aurora Ascencio (https://www.facebook.com/aurora.ascencio.7). I believe this is baby Lilliana Martinez (https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/19947_101727579857897_100000619653866_48897_225434 5_n.jpg). Precious as always. She defends her man. Same bullshit, another innocent baby gone. 13 years isn't enough.
Rest in peace baby Lilliana Martinez. You deserved far better.

Wow he aged FAST in 3 years! He looks damn near 30 in his most recent pic. I wholeheartedly agree 13yrs is not enough time for what he did. He will still be able to procreate when he gets out and that aint right! I hope someone turns him out while he is in jail so when he is released he is a lover of the penis and a catcher to boot! He should not be allowed to have kids or be around them.

I won't lie.
I checked this thread because I thought the Ricky Martinez it would be talking about could be a favorite pornstar of mine.
All is right in the porn world.
I hope this man suffers pain if he DID in fact inflict said injuries to the baby... the reports have me confused.
