TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – The man accused of going on a killing spree in northern New Mexico will remain in the state mental hospital a little longer.

Damian Herrera is accused of shooting and killed his mother, stepfather, and brother in Vallecitos in 2017, then killing a man he encountered in Tres Piedras and another in Abiquiu.

Judge Jeff McElroy ordered a review of Herrera’s competency earlier this year. According to court records, the judge has ruled he’s still not competent. The court will reevaluate in 90 days.
