Michigan State Police were called to a home in Alcona County’s Alcona Township on Dec. 30, 2018 at around 4:35 a.m.

Troopers began investigating and arrested 34-year-old David Martinez of Oscoda outside a nearby home. Troopers said he still had signs of black paint on his face that was worn during the incident.

Martinez was charged and arraigned on Jan. 2 on one count of felonious assault, he later bonded out.

But that wasn't the end of the investigation.

Troopers and detectives from the Alpena Post continued to dig into the incident, and developed additional evidence against Martinez and his girlfriend, 27-year-old Tiffany Keys of Oscoda.

Martinez and Keys were then charged with assault with intent to murder, conspiracy to commit homicide, attempted home invasion-1st degree, conspiracy to commit home invasion-1st degree and felony firearm.

Troopers arrested them both without incident at their home in Oscoda County on Jan. 9 and lodged them in Alcona County Jail.
