LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Two women have been indicted in connection with a deadly home invasion at a mixed martial arts (M.M.A.) fighter’s home in Las Cruces.
The Las Cruces Sun-News is reporting a Dona Ana County grand jury indicted 19-year-old Rachel Carrillo and 18-year-old Cylver Pearl Betancourt. Investigators say they were with four men accused of forcing their way into Joseph Torrez’s home New Year’s Day.
Torrez is a professional M.M.A. fighter.
Detectives say Torrez fought them off, killing one man and badly injuring another. Deputies say an argument earlier that night involving Torrez’s fiancé’s sister led to the break-in. They also say Torrez was not there during the argument. The District Attorney is still determining if Torrez will face charges.
