A woman suspected in the May 2018 murder of an Albuquerque woman will remain behind bars while she awaits trial.
Latrice Thomas was arrested in California recently for the shooting death of Hilarie Humbles. Humbles was found dead in the yard of an apartment complex near Central and Juan Tabo last summer.
Police say the shooting took place during a fight between the two over $40. Thursday in court, prosecutors argued Thomas was a threat to the community and should be locked up until trial, especially after a concerning comment she had made following the murder.
“She makes a statement of ‘what does it take to make a serial killer?’ and indicated that she had other bodies and had been involved in other homicides,“ said Detective Jessie Carter.
Despite Thomas’ attorney’s argument that she never made a confession, Judge Daniel Ramczyk granted the motion.
