Santa Fe man convicted in 2014 shooting deaths of 2 teens


SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – A jury convicted a man of murder in the 2014 deaths of a 13-year-old girl and an 18-year-old man whose bodies were found in a parked car south of Santa Fe.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that 22-year-old Ricardo ‘Ricky’ Martinez of Santa Fe was convicted Saturday of two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Anamarie Ojeda and Venancio Cisneros.

Prosecutors say Martinez killed Cisneros over a drug debt and that Ojeda was killed because she would have been a witness to the crime.

Police found Ojeda and Cisneros’ bodies in a vehicle parked on a dirt road off N.M. 14. They were fatally shot.
