Man found dead near I-40 was connected to Albuquerque homeowner’s murder

News

A man found murdered near the freeway was previously charged in the killing of an Albuquerque homeowner. 

Bernalillo County deputies found the body of 35-year-old Larry Phillips on Tuesday near the I-40 frontage road. 

Two years ago, Phillips was arrested for helping two men hid evidence after they stabbed a man outside his home in Four Hills while they were stealing cars. 

The charges against Phillips were later dropped. 

Deputies are not saying how Phillips was killed.
