NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – A Los Alamos man is behind bars in Sandoval County and charged with murder.
Deputies say 47-year-old Dean Cummings shot Guillermo Arriola Saturday afternoon inside a trailer home near Cabezon Peak. Cummings refused to give deputies his name after they were called to the home, only telling them he had shot Arriola in self-defense.
Cummings was arrested and booked into the Sandoval County jail. He will appear before Judge George Eichwald Friday.
