A man has been arrested for the murder of a woman found dead inside her apartment in Bay Terraces earlier this week, the San Diego Police Department confirmed Thursday. That man is the victim’s longtime boyfriend.
San Diego resident Martin Huey, 22, is accused of killing his girlfriend, Angelica Gregory, 22.
On Monday, at around 3:45 p.m., police were called to Gregory’s apartment in the 6600-block of Doriana Street. When officers arrived, they discovered Gregory unconscious in her home. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Although Gregory had sustained minor contusions, investigators were not able to immediately determine her cause of death. Investigators did, however, deem her death suspicious.
Huey was at the scene when officers arrived at Gregory's apartment. Investigators learned the couple had been dating for about four years.
On Wednesday, Huey was arrested in Riverside County by San Diego homicide detectives. He was initially charged with domestic violence in connection to Gregory’s case but on Thursday, police said Huey had been subsequently charged with the murder of his girlfriend.
The motive for the killing is unknown.
He’s currently being held at San Diego Central Jail and is scheduled to make his first court appearance Friday.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information should contact the SDPD’s homicide unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
