ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A man charged for the murders of two young mothers was scolded by a judge, but not for the details in his alleged crime what he did in court.
"I'm not interested in anything you have to say, I'm talking about your conduct you don't walk away in the middle of a hearing…I'm going to see you Tuesday for a contempt hearing and I think it's time for you to grow up and I think it's time for you to learn how to behave in a courtroom…your conduct is despicable," Judge Daniel Ramczyk said.
Saturday was the first time Alfonso Thompson, 36, faced a judge for the murder charges.
Instead of listening to the judge, Thompson just walked away upsetting Judge Daniel Ramczyk.
Thompson, along with his girlfriend Shalaka Booker, are accused of killing May Valerio and Naomi Trujillo at an Albuquerque apartment complex in April.
Police say the three women got into an argument.
Then Thompson allegedly got involved shooting and killing the victims.
Thompson is still in jail without bond.
Shalaka Booker also faces murder charges.
Her bond was set at $750,000, cash-only Friday.
