Autopsy details stabbing, gunshot deaths of Chicago family

A medical examiner says a Chicago woman killed alongside five family members in February was shot four times in the head and had gunshot wounds in each hand.

The bodies of Maria Herminia Martinez, three other adults and two children ages 10 and 13, were found Feb. 4 in their Chicago home.

The Cook County medical examiner's autopsy report released Tuesday says the 32-year-old Herminia Martinez was shot six times, while Noe Martinez Sr. had 42 knife wounds all over his body.

Chicago Sun-Times reports that the medical examiner found Herminia Martinez's 13-year-old son Leonardo Cruz was stabbed in his head, cheek, neck and shoulder.

Autopsies for the other three victims were released earlier this month.

Police have yet to publicly identify any suspects in the killings.
