Mother of 'Beloved Doe' due in court today

HOUSTON 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.
