TUCUMCARI, N.M. (AP) — A 33-year-old Chicago man has been arrested in the killings of two men at a Tucumcari, N.M., hotel.
New Mexico state police spokesman Eric Garcia said Monday that Muziwokuthula "Muzie" Madonda was arrested without incident in Conroe, Texas outside of Houston on two counts of murder and tampering with evidence.
It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.
Madonda is awaiting extradition back to New Mexico to face the charges, which stem from the deaths of 37-year-old Gabriel Baca and 57-year-old Bobby Gonzales, both of Tucumcari.
A family member who looked through a window at the Tucumcari Inn found the men's bodies Thursday.
It's unclear how the men were killed.
