Attorneys: Murder investigation wasn’t thorough

Attorneys say cops botched murder investigation

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Attorneys for Ronald Santiago went after officers on the witness stand Friday, trying to convince a jury they didn’t do a thorough enough investigation.

Santiago is accused of killing his clients Greg and Bernadette Ohlemacher in 2005.

One of the officers to investigate the murder, officer Carl Ross, had to answer questions about the physical evidence.

It was revealed that OMI didn’t take nail clippings from Greg until after his body was released to his family. That is important in this case because there are allegations that Greg got into a fight with someone the day before the murders.

The argument is that DNA of that person may have been under his nails. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
