ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The fourth teen charged in the murder of a Manzano High School student was arraigned in court Monday.

After Jaydon Chavez-Silver was gunned down at a 2015 house party, police say new evidence led to the arrest of 19-year-old Dominic Conyers in March.

In court Monday, Chavez-Silver’s mother asked the judge to consider GPS monitoring since Conyers has already bonded out of jail. The judge agreed, and also continued Conyer’s bond at $100,000 cash or surety, which he has since posted.

Police do not believe that Jaydon Chavez-Silver was the intended target, but that the shooting was retaliation against others inside the house.

Conyers is the fourth person charged in the murder. Three others are awaiting trial. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
