Identified killer: Jonaiki Martinez-Estrella, ‘I was miles away at the time’

Authorities identified Martinez-Estrella, who has a prior arrest for robbing and beating a 14-year-old with a golf club in 2016, as the one who sliced the victim’s neck.
However in spite of the video evidence, 24-year-old Martinez-Estrella, who cops say delivered the fatal blow to the neck of the 15-year-old victim, said his defense is right there on his skin: The attacker caught on video has a neck tattoo, while he does not. And, he adds, he was in Pennsylvania at the time of the murder.
“Look at my neck,” he protested at the Manhattan Detention Center. “I have nothing.”
When he was arrested in Paterson, N.J., several days after the killing, he was about to get a tattoo, and “didn’t even know what Junior looked like until I saw his face on television,” Martinez-Estrella claimed
Martinez-Estrella said he works in construction “almost every day,” suffers from epilepsy and when Junior was killed on June 20, he was miles away in New Jersey.
