ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Latrice Thomas, the woman once accused of shooting and killing Hilarie Humbles at an apartment complex in 2018 will be released to a sober living facility. Officials say Humbles helped Thomas move and asked to be paid $40. The murder charges were dismissed on the state level but Thomas is now facing federal charges for allegedly having a man buy her a gun months before Humble was killed and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

U.S. Attorney says that’s too much freedom for her. The attorney also said, “It’s no exaggeration to say that the defendant is a one-woman crime wave…” Since the age of 14, attorneys say Thomas has been arrested 36 times. Thomas will move to the facility until a spot opens up at a halfway house in Albuquerque.
