CA - Nicole Sinkule, 24, bludgeoned to death, Oceanside, 16 Oct 2005
VISTA – A 25-year-old man, who allegedly used a hammer to bludgeon his estranged girlfriend to death in her Oceanside apartment last year, must stand trial for murder, a judge ruled Tuesday.
Judge Marguerite Wagner ruled there was enough evidence to hold Eric Nathaniel "Nate" Marum to answer to charges stemming from the death last Oct. 16 of 25-year-old Nicole Sinkule.
According to court testimony, Marum has two domestic violence convictions involving the same victim.
..."She was obviously dead. There were copious amounts of blood and a small amount of brain matter," Garcia said. "I saw a hammer that was deeply imbedded into her skull."

From February 2007:
Superior Court Judge Joan Weber handed Marum a sentence of 16 years to life in prison — a punishment he received in exchange for his guilty plea to second-degree murder for the Oct. 16, 2005, slaying of his girlfriend at her Oceanside residence...
Court documents state that he told police he went to his girlfriend's apartment, where he grabbed the claw hammer from his tool box. He went back and forth a few times, he said, before finally going in and killing her in her bed...
Violence — and Marum's methamphetamine use — plagued the 13-month relationship, including an incident in which Marum tried to physically pull Nicole Sinkule away while she was on duty as a waitress in a harborside restaurant. Police were called; Marum jumped in the water and tried to hide.
