It's pretty obvious this guy killed his drug supplier. No one stays in jail this long for marijuana. The authorities knew they had their man right from the start, which is why he's been held in jail for so long. My question is and has always been, is Marvin's wife involved and/or how much did she know about her husband's drug business? Marvin was conducting his drug dealings out of his family home. In an earlier article back when this story broke, one of the officers at the police station said Marvin was overheard on the telephone with his wife making the comment, "We should have left town." Hmmm... makes one wonder. This is a very sad story for their children, because this father and possibly mother, had a drug dealer coming to their house on a regular basis, dropping off drugs and collecting money. Hey, great parenting! If Marvin did indeed kill Eric Martin, then he deserves to sit right where he is.

I've wondered about the wife too. I've noticed none of the articles talk much about her. It will be interesting to see all that transpires from this story and case, especially since this is a family that was fairly intertwined in our community. It just goes to show, you never really know who your neighbors are.

In a more recent article it says he had a wife, a girlfriend and five chldren while other articles said he had a wife and 3 children. Makes you wonder who was involved. Was it the wife or the girlfriend?

How can you be so sure? If it turns out his wife wasn't involved, it doesn't mean she wasn't privvy to what was going down.

I do find it curious that we're not hearing who gave Marvin a ride back over to W.C. to meet with Martin, as well as retrieve his car just hours after he dropped it off.
