Gitchel has not been formally charged in the case, but a King County judge on Friday ruled that prosecutors showed probable cause to hold Gitchel as they continue investigating Martinez-Cosman’s disappearance, The Seattle Times reported.

In addition to the murder and kidnapping investigation, police say Gitchel is also being held for investigation into an alleged assault, theft, and unlawful possession of a firearm. The latter allegations stem from Martinez-Cosman’s son being abducted and the theft of jewelry.
