Benefit Held for 6 Year Old Boy Allegedly Killed by Mother's Boyfriend

      There was an overwhelming show of support for the family of 6 year old Xadrian Martinez on Saturday.
     Just days after Xadrian tragically died, his family, friends and even complete strangers have come together to help raise money for funeral costs.
     Suzie Anguiano who stopped by to buy a barbeque plate said, "it's unfair that it happened to him. We want to help and support in any way that we can because we have kids of our own and if it was our kids we want the same turn out."
     A BBQ benefit was arranged by a Facebook group called 361 Custom Ride Scene -- they are a Facebook page for car clubs here in the area.
     They came together on Saturday at the parking lot behind Fuddruckers after hearing the tragic story of Xadrian on the news.
      Xadrian -- who died earlier this week at the hospital after police say the boy's stepfather, 27-year-old Albert Villarreal struck young Xadrian after he soiled his clothing.
     Reportedly, Villarreal then grabbed the boy by the neck until he was unconscious and then slammed him into a refrigerator.
    Villareal is now behind bars and faces capital murder charges as well as Xadrian's mother -- Nancy Rae Martinez.
     If you weren't able to make it to the benefit, you can still donate directly at the Trevino Funeral Home.
