Springfield police began their investigation when they were called to a home on Rosewood Avenue for a domestic violence call. There, his mother told police that Martin was living with her and they had gotten into an argument the night before.

The two separated that night, the report says, but the next morning Martin returned.

“(The woman) stated they began to argue and Mr. Martin spit on her through the screen,” the report says. (The woman) stated she opened the door and Mr. Martin grabbed her by the neck and pulled her down the concrete stairs on the front of her house, causing injury to her neck and foot.”

Martin fled the scene following the incident, the affidavit says.
