Salvador MartinezEDGEWOOD, NM  – Salvador Martinez has been accused of stabbing his girlfriend’s 9-month-old puppy to death with a screwdriver, then skinning the dog and  marinating it in Italian dressing.

Torrance County deputies responded to the man’s home after receiving a call regarding the 46-year-old’s odd behavior. When they arrived, a woman told them that Martinez had killed the family dog, a 9-month-old black-and-white chiweenie named Onyx.

But that’s not all he did. After stabbing the dog to death with a screwdriver, he skinned and cut up the puppy before storing the meat in the fridge in an Italian dressing marinade.

Afterwards, he went online to search for dog meat recipes (I find wedding style dog stew to be quite tasty) and to check if eating dog was illegal in New Mexico.

Martinez freely admitted to deputies what he’d done, claiming the couple didn’t have enough food for themselves and the grandkids that lived there. This claim was denied by his girlfriend, who told investigators there was plenty of food in the house.

She said that Martinez was drunk the night before and got mad at the dog barking, along with the eight other dogs that live in the home.

“He said he was going to kill one and barbecue it,” she said. “I didn’t believe him because he’d been saying it for a while and I knew he loved animals.”

Turns out it isn’t illegal to eat dog meat in New Mexico, but it is illegal to stab them to death with a screwdriver. Martinez was arrested and charged with extreme animal cruelty, a fourth degree felony. He was also charged with child abuse.

“The kids were present inside the residence and had full knowledge of what was taking place with their family pet,” Sheriff Heath White said.

Martinez is now in federal custody because he may have violated his probation. In 2003, Martinez was caught driving across the border with nearly 13 kilos of cocaine and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
