LOS LUNAS, New Mexico — It has been on the news that a 15-year-old New Mexico teen was indicted Thursday on a murder charge in connection with the killing of his 12-year-old playmate.
The teen was indicted by a Valencia County grand jury on charges of first-degree murder and tampering with evidence.
Last week, 13th Judicial District Attorney Lemuel Martinez said that he plans to try the 15-year-old as an adult.
However, Martinez said a judge would have the option of sentencing the teen as a youthful offender. That means the judge wouldn’t have to impose a maximum sentence if the boy is convicted.
