ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The Albuquerque man accused of killing two complete strangers has now been indicted for their murders.
Fontayne Hopkins, 21 was indicted by a grand jury Thursday.
He faces multiple charges including two open counts of murder and three counts of criminal sexual penetration.
He's accused of killing Ramona Montoya Leon earlier this month as she was cleaning a room at the Plaza Inn.
He then allegedly killed another stranger--Arthur Garcia--who offered him a ride on March 13.
Hopkins told detectives he wrapped a telephone cord around both victims' necks so police would see a pattern.
A fingerprint on a beer can at the second murder scene connected Hopkins to both murders, police said.
He remains jailed on $500,000 cash-only bond.
