Man connected to murders of two Albuquerque teens held pending trial

Crime

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man accused of covering up a double-murder on behalf of his son, will stay behind bars for now.

Investigators say Stephen Goldman Sr. torched the car used to transport the bodies of Collin Romero and Ahmed Lateef. The two teens were tortured and shot before being dumped on the Rio Rancho mesa last year.

Wednesday, prosecutors presented phone calls between Goldman and his son, Stephen Goldman Jr., who was locked up at MDC at the time. An Albuquerque Police detective testified they can be heard talking about how to cover up the crime.

Goldman Jr. is considered a suspect in the murders, though he has not yet been charged.
