Constance marten wikipedia
Constance Marten, now 36, grew up in a wealthy British family, attending private school. She later became estranged from them after beginning a relationship with Mark Gordon, now 49.
Gordon moved from the UK to Florida as a child. In 1989 at age 14, he was convicted of violently attacking a neighbor. He served 20 years in prison before being deported back to the UK in 2010, still claiming he was innocent.
The couple's missing baby prompted a massive search. But authorities were sadly too late to find the infant alive after locating Marten and Gordon. The community mourns a precious life lost so early.
Constance Marten and Mark Gordon were arrested last year in Brighton, UK. Dramatic video of their arrest was shown at their trial. They are accused of the death of their newborn baby girl, Victoria.

Police had been searching for Marten, 36, and Gordon, 49, who were secretly living in tents with their baby. On February 27th, police tracked and arrested them after a tip from the public.
