ESPANOLA, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico State Police say a 28-year-old Ojo Caliente man has been arrested in connection with a double homicide in Rio Arriba County.
Police say Donald Ferran is facing first-degree murder and tampering with evidence charges in the deaths of 27-year-old Sarah Salazar and 25-year-old Joey Maestas.
The victims' burned bodies were found after firefighters extinguished a vehicle fire in the early hours of Feb. 28th along U.S. 285 between Espanola and Ojo Caliente.
Agents with the state police criminal investigations bureau were called to the scene and began an in-depth investigation into what lead up to the vehicle fire. Agents found evidence that led them to believe it was a double homicide.
State police announced Ferran's arrest Monday.
