ESPANOLA, N.M. (KRQE) – A New Mexico man accused of murdering another man after threatening him will stay locked up until trial.
67-year-old William Jemerson was shot to death in his home of Medanales, north of Espanola, earlier this month.
State Police arrested 25-year-old Gabriel Sanchez, who is accused of threatening Jimerson and even setting his mobile home on fire the day before the shooting.
Sanchez’s ex-fiance told police the trouble started back in June when Sanchez broke into Jimerson’s home and found her there with Jimerson.
Last week, a judge ordered Sanchez to be held without bond until his trial.
