SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A northern new Mexico man who was acquitted of murder after a 2007 trial has been convicted in two other killings.
A jury in Rio Arriba County found 29-year-old Donald Ferran guilty of two counts of first-degree murder and tampering with evidence. Prosecutors says the Ojo Caliente resident lured 25-year-old Joey Maestas and 27-year-old Sarah Salazar to a highway rest stop north of Espanola in March 2011 after seeing Maestas flash a wad of cash. The victims were found in a burning Honda at the rest stop.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Ferran was convicted Monday and faces life in prison. A sentencing date hasn't been set.
Prosecutors accused Ferran of killing a woman in 2005 but could not produce a murder weapon and he was acquitted.
