Christopher Martini, plead guilty to a dozen criminal charges, including assault with intent to murder, in Middlesex Superior Court. He reportedly was arrested in April. The victim's 7-year-old daughter found her mother laying face down on the kitchen floor and called her grandfather, according to a police report. The grandfather told police that during that call from the girl, he heard Martini in the background screaming for the girl to "get the (expletive) off the phone." According to the report, Martini tried to pull first responders away from the woman as they treated her for what he called an "overdose."
