Martin can be heard on the recording yelling at Jenkins to stop punching her face, according to court documents. She then dropped the phone.
“Shortly after that, you hear her scream as she falls,” West wrote.
When police arrived, Jenkins was straddling Martin’s body and “appeared to be intoxicated,” court documents say.
Jenkins, who is from the Taylorville, Illinois, told police he and Martin were married May 22 in Las Vegas, charges say. He told police their co-workers had accompanied them to the Cardinals-Cubs game at Busch Stadium where they argued.

Police said they were continuing to investigate Martin’s death. An autopsy was being conducted.
