By Steve Large September 26, 2022 / 11:55 PM / CBS Sacramento A family and community are grieving a senseless act of violence, and a young pregnant mother's death. A 16-year-old girl is under arrest, facing a double murder charge. Photos show Jessie Martinez, a Lodi mother, with a child on the way. Her long-time friend Sinai Vasquez took the selfie of the pair. Vasquez is in shock, over her friend's fate. "She was a good friend," Vasquez said. "Funny, adorable, and beautiful." Lodi Police say Martinez was inside her home Saturday night at a gathering that included the father of her expected child, when a 16-year-old girl attacked Martinez with a knife.
