Warrant issued for mom who ID’d son as shooting suspect

Copyright © 2020 Albuquerque Journal

An Albuquerque mother who told police she believed her son was the suspect in a homicide is now refusing to participate in his prosecution, prompting a judge to issue a warrant for her arrest Wednesday, court documents show.

Jerred Holguin is accused of shooting and killing Matthew Shaw, a man he did not know, in what prosecutors describe as a “purely unprovoked attack.”

State District Judge Alisa Hart authorized the issuance of a warrant Wednesday that will allow authorities to take Holguin’s mother into custody for a deposition. A spokesman for the District Attorney’s Office said the Crimes Strategies Unit plans to serve the warrant and interview her as soon as possible.

Surveillance footage from a nearby car wash captured the July 23 shooting, and police provided it to local media for broadcast in hopes of identifying the gunman.

Lorie Holguin told police that people were calling her asking if her son was the man in the video. She looked it up and watched it several times and believed it was Jerred.

“She said Jerred had called her … and stated, ‘I love you mom. I messed up,’ ” police wrote in a criminal complaint.

In January, authorities served Lorie Holguin with a subpoena ordering her to appear for a pretrial interview.

“I want nothing to do with this case and will not go,” she said in response.

Later attempts to contact her have been unsuccessful.

“It is apparent Lorie Holguin disregarded the subpoena, which is hindering the prosecution of this case,” Assistant District Attorney Shonnetta Estrada wrote in a motion seeking the warrant.

Attorneys on Wednesday indicated they may be close to reaching a plea agreement in the case.
