Suspect Arrested in 38-Year-Old Cold Case


TAOS, N.M. (AP) — A suspect has been arrested in connection with a homicide case in Taos, according to authorities.

Taos police said 38-year-old Ray Rivera was taken into custody on suspicion of first-degree murder and charges could be modified as investigators continue to gather evidence.

Officers arrived at the shooting scene around 9:30 p.m. Thursday and found 25-year-old Antonio Martinez of Taos dead from a gunshot wound.

Police said Rivera fled the scene, but was found a short time later and arrested.

It was unclear Sunday if Rivera had a lawyer yet who could speak on his behalf.
