Donald Duquette

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A hearing to decide if the man accused of shooting and killing a driver on I-40 will be held until trial has been reset.

Donald Duquette was expected in court Monday, a week after he turned himself in for allegedly shooting and killing Jose Ruben Diaz on I-40. Duquette said he had smoked meth and marijuana over the weekend and felt like he had to defend himself.

Duquette’s hearing is expected to take place next week.
