Albuquerque News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The trial is set to begin for the woman accused of hitting and killing two people Tuesday morning. Officials say in 2017, Elexus Groves was behind the wheel of a stolen van fleeing from police when she slammed into a car with Shaylee Boiling and her mother Shaunna Arredondo-Boling inside. They both died due to injuries from the scene. Paul Garcia was also in the vehicle with Groves.

Last week, Judge Brett Loveless denied Groves’s request to have a change of venue for the case. Jury selection for the trial began Tuesday with opening statements set for Thursday. Last month, Paul Garcia agreed to plead guilty to auto theft and fleeing the scene of a deadly accident. In exchange, Garcia will testify against Groves.
