Emotional confrontation played in Malmberg trial‎

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – On Thursday, more heart-breaking tapes were played in a Grand Rapids courtroom.

Jeffrey Malmberg is charged with second degree murder in the death of two-year-old Jozlynn Martinez.

Earlier tapes played in court were of Malmberg claiming his innocence and then admitting that the girl was dead. Her body has never been found.

On Thursday, the tapes played included an emotional confrontation between Malmberg and the young victim's mother.

Malmberg trial continues for 4th day‎

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - After telling an FBI agent that Jozlynn Martinez died after he tripped and his knee hit the girl, Jeffrey Malmberg changed his story one last time: he said put his knee on Jozlynn's chest to calm the girl down during a fit.

That is what the jury in Malmberg's second-degree murder trial heard Friday morning. The account of Malmberg putting his knee on the girl's chest during a tantrum in February is something both sides in the case agree on.

But the defense argues the 40-year-old defendant never meant to hurt the girl.

Jeffrey Malmberg describes in FBI interviews yet another differing version of how Jozlynn Martinez, 2, died

GRAND RAPIDS -- Jeffrey Malmberg’s differing stories of what happened to Jozlynn Martinez finally evolved to the fact that his knee snuffed the life out of the 2-year-old girl on Feb. 22.

But Malmberg, in an interview with FBI agent Brad Beyer that is being played for jurors today in the 40-year-old’s murder trial in Kent County Circuit Court, said he tripped and fell on the girl.

Beyer continued to press Malmberg, at times calling him "an inherently decent person" who had something more than an accident happen. Malmberg still denies any intentional force.

"I told you my knee landed on her," Malmberg said. "I went back in the bedroom. I just went out to get a cigarette. I come back in the bedroom, I trip over this teddy bear on the floor. I landed on her chest.

"There’s nothing worse than looking at your dead daughter laying on the floor ... and you can’t do a thing."

Jeffrey Malmberg's defense begins‎



The fate of Jeffrey Malmberg is now in the hands of the jurors in his murder trial. He's accused of second-degree murder in the death of 2-year-old Jozlynn Martinez.

Taking the stand in his own defense Monday, Malmberg said he "didn't think [he] did anything major to hurt her, I wasn't trying to hurt her." He has repeatedly admitted to putting his knee on the girl's chest during a tantrum.

To find him guilty of murder in the second degree, jurors will have to conclude that he intended to kill the girl, intended to do "great bodily harm" or that he "knowingly created a very high risk of great bodily harm."

Jurors can find Malmberg guilty of the lesser crime of involuntary manslaughter. He's also charged with tampering with evidence -- for disposing of the girl's body -- and larceny -- for taking money from his then girlfriend, Jozlynn's mother.

In a testy exchange with Becker, Malmberg refused to show jurors exactly how he put his knee on Jozlynn's chest.

The prosecutor then took issue the defendant's earlier statement that he didn't remember with certain whether he was restraining the girl's arms at the time.

Judge rejects Jeffrey Malmberg's request to bypass jury, acquit him of murder charge in death of Jozlynn Martinez, 2

GRAND RAPIDS -- A judge this morning rejected the request of Jeffrey Malmberg for a directed verdict that would have acquitted him of a second-degree murder charge in the death of Jozlynn Martinez.

Defense attorney Jeffrey Kirchhoff asked Kent County Circuit Court Judge Donald Johnston to find Malmberg, 40, guilty of involuntary manslaughter instead of sending the case to a jury to decide. The manslaughter charge is punishable by up to 15 years in prison as opposed to the possibility of life that the murder charge carries.

Kirchhoff argued that Malmberg's statements that the death was an accident was the only evidence submitted by prosecutors, showing a lack of intent or reasonable knowledge that his actions put the 2-year-old at risk of death.

Jeffrey Malmberg takes stand in killing of Jozlynn Martinez‎

The man who admitted to killing two-year-old Jozlynn Martinez in February is testifying today that he didn't intend to hurt the girl.

The trial of Jeffrey Malmberg entered its second week this morning with Malmberg taking the stand.

In questioning by the defense, Malmberg said that he lied early on about everything surrounding Jozlynn's death because he was afraid. He went to Lansing to play pool and gamble because they needed the money. He did not intend to run away and never meant to hurt Jozlynn.

Under questioning from the prosecution, Malmberg was questioned about his temper. He testified that he never raised his voice, but that Connie Martinez, Jozlynn's mother who was dating Malmberg at the time, knew how to "push his buttons" and was the only one who could make him mad. Malmberg characterized their relationship as violent, but that she was the abuser and he never hit her. He also said that Jozlynn "got pretty vicious sometimes" and had thrown "fits" before.

Defense rests after Jeffrey Malmberg takes the stand, again tells jury Jozlynn Martinez's death was accidental



Jeffrey Malmberg, on the witness stand in his second-degree murder trial, was forced to admit that he initiated contact with 2-year-old Jozlynn Martinez the night she died.

Under questioning from Assistant Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker, Malmberg said Jozlynn was kicking and screaming while throwing a fit after being told to go to her room and play with her toys. Malmberg was attending to his 7-month-old son, Bryan, who was crying, he testified.

Jury deliberates in Jeffrey Malmberg murder trial‎

GRAND RAPIDS - Jurors have now been deliberating for more than two hours in Jeffrey Malmberg's second-degree murder trial in Kent County Circuit Court.

Judge Donald Johnston today gave the case to the jury after Malmberg testified.

The jury could return a finding of involuntary manslaughter if jurors believe Malmberg did not intend to cause great bodily harm when placing his knee on 2-year-old Jozlynn Martinez.

Jurors are also considering counts of larceny and tampering with evidence, crimes that the defense largely has not contested. Malmberg and defense attorney Jeffrey Kirchhoff have acknowledged he was involved in the girl's Feb. 22 death, but say it was an accident.

Verdict in Malmberg trial‎

The jury in the trial of Jeffery Malmberg has delivered a verdict.

Malmberg was charged with second degree murder in the death of two-year-old Jozlynn Martinez.

Malmberg admitted to putting his knees on the girl's chest, but the defense has maintained that he had no intention of killing the child.

On Monday, the jury delivered its verdict, finding Malmberg guilty of all three charges against him; second degree murder, larceny and evidence tampering.

It was an emotional ending to the trial, and Connie Martinez, Jozlynn's mother, is relieved that justice has been served for her little girl.

Family members hugged after the verdict was ready and said this is one step in the healing process.

Jury finds Jeffrey Malmberg guilty of second-degree murder in death of 2-year-old Jozylnn Martinez

Jeffrey Malmberg has been found guilty of second-degree murder today following a Kent County Circuit Court jury deliberating for about three hours.

The verdict was just returned and Malmberg now faces up to life in prison on the conviction for killing 2-year-old Jozlynn Martinez on Feb. 22.

Malmberg admitted putting his knee on the chest of the girl, the daughter of his live-in girlfriend Connie Martinez.

During the five-day trial, he argued that Jozlynn’s death was an accident as he tried to calm her temper tantrum.

Assistant Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker worked to convince the panel that Malmberg should have known the risk of injury or death was likely when a grown man puts his body on a child.


Becker said there was no excuse for the response by Malmberg, who bagged Jozlynn’s body and threw it in a Dumpster near their 915 Nagold St. NW apartment.

It is with great sadness that I move this casae to our closed cases thread!!

It has been presumed for a long time that Jozlynn was dead but I guess there was always a small chance that she would be found!!!

Today, Jeffrey Malmberg was found guilty of the second-degree murder of Jozlynn Mari Martinez.

Sadly Jozylynn's body was never found!!

We now await sentencing. I Hope the judge gives him the maximum penalty, and he'll spend the rest of his life in prison.

Mother of victim reacts to Malmberg verdict

After the verdict, Newschannel 3 spoke with Jozlynn's mother, Connie Martinez. The family wept bittersweet tears that justice was being served, but for Martinez, the pain remains. She says she'll never get over losing her daughter.

“He's done a lot more damage than what he should have been able to do,” said Martinez.

Martinez says she's relieved that the jury found her ex-boyfriend guilty of second degree murder and the other charges against him.

“Hearing that he was guilty on all three charges was really nice,” said Martinez, “because at least other people believe how we feel as a family.”

.... Malmberg is facing life in prison for the second degree murder charge. Sentencing is scheduled for November 2nd.
