« Court: 1-year limit on charging DWI first offenses |

Convicted murderer Paul Lovett hopes to get two new trials.
Lovett, 31, was convicted of killing two women in Hobbs in 2002 and 2003.
He stood trial for both killings in a single trial. Jurors convicted him, but spared his life.
Lovett claims the single trial on separate murder charges was unfair.
The state Supreme Court will consider his claim.
Lovett's victims were Elizabeth Garcia, 26, and Patty Simon, 35.
A detailed story about the case appears Wednesday in your T-NM newspaper.

Do you have any idea why there is new activity on the original case? A third party plaintiff has filed a motion for a conference under Rule 1-016. The attorney is Ron Morgan. Is this just somebody who wants money out of Allsups? Or some relation to Elizabeth Garcia?
