Man indicted in girlfriend’s beating death

Mark Guerro (MDC)

A man accused in the beating of his girlfriend last month was indicted Thursday in her slaying after she died in the hospital.

Mark Guerro, 46, is charged with murder and criminal sexual penetration in the death of 36-year-old Judith Apache.

On May 5, around 12:30 a.m., deputies responded to a possible overdose in the 2600 block of Isleta SW and found Judith Apache, 36, unconscious with bruising across her body.

According to court records, Apache was taken to the hospital with a brain bleed so severe that half of her brain had to be removed. Doctors also found evidence of rape.

Deputies say they arrested Guerro after he told them he used a belt and a broom to hit her multiple times. Apache died two weeks later.
