Woman connected to deadly road rage shooting takes plea deal

An Albuquerque woman has taken a plea deal for her role in a deadly road rage shooting. 

Alexis Rogers was driving in the South Valley last year when her passenger, Damian Luna, shot at another car and killed 16-year-old Efrain Azarte. 

Rogers was facing charges including first-degree murder, but on Thursday, she pleaded guilty to harboring a felon and conspiracy to commit harboring. 

“The defendant did knowingly assist him in remaining a fugitive including providing a vehicle, driving, financial assistance,” prosecutors said. 

Rogers faces up to three years in prison when she’s sentenced next month. The District Attorney’s office says after extensive interviews, it was clear there was no evidence that Rogers knew Luna was going to shoot out of the car. 

Earlier this week, Luna pleaded guilty to shooting at a motor vehicle and faces up to 15 years behind bars.
