A judge could reconsider his decision to dismiss charges against a Nambe man accused of killing a woman and living with her dead body for months.
Elvira Segura, who was 67-years-old, was found in her home back in October.
Robert Mondrian-Powell, 57, was later arrested.
Police say he confessed to shooting Segura after an altercation.
Judge T. Glenn Ellington dismissed the cast last month, saying the state violated Mondrian-Powell’s right to a speedy trial.
According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, Judge Ellington is listening to both sides to see whether his decision will hold.
