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.
