Fabian Gonzales admitted to violating his probation when he didn’t report to an officer after an August 2014 case.

He was charged with abandonment of a child and battery against a household member.

The Bernalillo County Assistant DA filed a motion to revoke Gonzales’s probation just a day after Victoria’s murder. The state is asking Gonzales serve two years for this violation. Sentencing is set for October 6th.

Gonzales is also being held on a $1 million cash-only bond in connection with Victoria’s death.
