Española honors State Police officer murdered in line of duty

ESPANOLA, N.M. (KRQE) - A State Police officer murdered in the line of duty nearly three decades ago was honored in the city he served.

Officer Glen Huber was one of the two law enforcement killed in what has become known as the "Chimayo Massacre."

Ricky Abeyta, 28-years-old, killed seven people in January 1991 after a domestic dispute. This includes Rio Arriba County Deputy Jerry Martinez and Officer Huber.

The Española State Police Office, which has undergone a major renovation, was dedicated Friday and officially named after Huber.
