Albuquerque Police Make Arrest in 2014 Roswell Murder

Albuquerque authorities arrested a man accused of killing a woman in 2014 over an alleged drug debt in Southern New Mexico.

Deputies with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Marshals, caught 36 year old Matthew Sifuentes, Wednesday night. Sifuentes is charged with first degree murder and tampering with evidence in the 2014 death of 31-year-old Jessica Torrez in Roswell.

The year after Torrez’ murder, Sifuentes was arrested at the Mexico border and charged in the May 2015 death of 23-year-old Daniel Herrera, whose body was found on the outskirts of Roswell. That case was eventually dismissed, due to lack of evidence.
