He said: 'Her mouth was all broken, she was very damaged, her skin was hanging off because of the blows.?

'He controlled the victim's social networking sites, he controlled the messages and photos, and for every 'like' she received from her friends, the woman received a beating because he accused her of having a relationship with them.'?

Mr Martinez said she only didn't lose her teeth because 'he would put a cloth in her mouth so that she would not scream during the brutal beatings that she suffered daily.'?
