The mother of the little boy known as "Beloved Doe" will be in court today. Madana Martinez is charged with murder and injury to a child by omission. The body of her son, Jose Bernardo, was found in a dumpster back in March 2003.

For years, his identity was unknown, which is why he was nicknamed "Beloved Doe".

Police received a tip call last week and arrested Martinez. Jose was five years old at the time of his death.
