De La O is charged with first-degree murder, aggravated fleeing, and eight other charges in connection to the murder of Alamogordo Police Department officer Anthony Ferguson. Key said the enhancements are warranted based on the fact that De La O was out on conditions of release when the incident happened and that he obtained a federally banned weapon from a convicted felon.
