A woman from Idaho was killed. Court document shows ‘undeclared physical household batteries’


A 20-year-old woman who was fatally shot last week had “several unreported physical household batteries” between her and her suspected killer, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by the Idaho statesman.

Buhl resident Julie Martinez was allegedly shot in the head by Alfonso Emmanuel “Junior Gamboa” Leon, who has now been charged with first-degree murder, according to online court records. Gamboa on Tuesday was being held in Canyon County Jail without bond.

“Julie was a kind, loving and caring soul,” according to a GoFundMe page created by her cousin which raised more than $12,000 on Tuesday. The page also states that Martinez was a victim of domestic violence. “Julie played the role of mother to her little sister when her mother left them at a young age. Despite her difficulties, she always gave so much love to everyone who met her.

Gamboa is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing at 8:30 a.m. on June 15, according to online court records.

At 7:09 a.m. on May 22, the Nampa Police Department was dispatched to the 80 block South Drifter Loop residence after receiving a report that Martinez was found upstairs in a bathroom, according to the affidavit written by Nampa PD Det. Tim Onofrei. The unidentified 911 caller said Martinez “was found upstairs in the bathroom conscious, breathing, covered in blood,” the affidavit states.

Nampa police arrived on the scene at 7:20 a.m., when they located Martinez in the bathroom behind a door, according to the affidavit. Officers observed that the blood was from Martinez’s head trauma, according to the affidavit.

Police also said Martinez had lost some of his clothes and the tub was half full of clothes, according to the affidavit. A single casing from the bullet was found near Martinez, but no firearm was found.

Martinez was transported to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, where she was pronounced dead at 7:58 a.m. from a gunshot wound, according to the affidavit and a news release from the Ada County Coroner’s Office.

Several people interviewed by police said Gamboa had a black semi-automatic pistol just before the incident, according to the affidavit. The other parties also placed Gamboa and Martinez in the bathroom, with one person claiming to have heard an argument between the two.

The parties then heard “a thud coming from the upstairs bathroom”, according to the affidavit. A person went upstairs to investigate the noise and was told by Gamboa, according to the affidavit, ‘it was an accident’ and that Martinez ‘took my gun and shot him in the head’ .

The affidavit indicates that Gamboa then told the person that he passed out and did not remember anything else.

Gamboa and the other person then headed downstairs, where Gamboa had an argument and physical confrontation with another family member, according to the affidavit. Gamboa eventually left the scene in a vehicle, according to the affidavit.
