ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - Alamogordo police say a convicted ax murderer has been arrested after he allegedly violated an order of protection by knocking on the door of the family home Feb. 21 where the murders occurred in 1989.
The Alamogordo Daily News reports Albert Lueras was booked into the Otero County Detention Center on fourth-degree felony aggravated stalking and a misdemeanor violation of a restraining order. He was arraigned Monday on both charges in 12th Judicial District Court.
It's the third time he has been arrested for violating the protection order since being released from prison after serving 19 years for murdering his mother and 6-year-old nephew with an ax on April 17, 1989.
Twelvth Judicial Chief Deputy District Attorney David Ceballes said there's been a restraining order in place for several years against Lueras.
