The New Mexico Supreme Court on June 24 upheld a first-degree murder and aggravated stalking convictions of Alejandro Azamar-Nolasco for the 2016 killing of a Raton woman.

The decision was divided, but the court vacated the defendant’s conviction and sentence for aggravated burglary, concluding that it violated constitutional double jeopardy protections against multiple punishments for the same criminal conduct.
