ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Authorities use DNA to link suspect to killing of man on Isleta SW
Bernalillo County Sheriff’s detectives arrested 36-year-old Christopher Sanchez last night on suspicion of killing Luis Maldonado on Feb. 7, court records show.
Sanchez was identified as
a suspect early on, but in the last several days technicians from the
Metropolitan Forensic Science Center were able to provide the definitive
connection based on blood evidence found on the Sanchez’s boots, BCSO spokeswoman Erin Kinnard Thompson tells ABQJournal.com.
