Rios found guilty of second-degree murder in homeless beating deaths


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A jury on Wednesday stopped short of finding Alex Rios guilty of first-degree murder in the beating deaths of Allison Gorman and Kee Thompson, but jurors convicted him of second-degree murder and 21 other charges.

The slaying of the two homeless men in their 40s, which shocked the community and made national news, occurred in the wee hours of July 19, 2014, in a vacant lot at 60th and Central NW next to the home of Gilbert Tafoya. Tafoya was one of three teens charged with the crime.
