Search continues for 2nd Albuquerque murder suspect


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police have identified the victim of a southeast Albuquerque murder that happened on April 14.

The man who was shot and killed Thursday evening at an apartment complex near Cardenas and Anderson has been identified as 33-year-old William Martinez.

Detectives working the case have identified two suspects believed to be responsible for Martinez’s murder as 37-year-old Ramon J. Acosta and 38-year-old Charles J. Robinson.

Acosta was taken into custody by detectives late Saturday and booked on charges of murder and conspiracy.

Robinson, AKA Devon Jones, AKA “Q,” is currently at large.

Police have issued a warrant for Robinson’s arrest on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, assault to commit a violent felony and conspiracy.

Robinson was previously indicted for the May 2014 murder of Thomas Manuel. After Manuel’s murder, Robinson fled New Mexico and was taken into custody in Gillette, Wyoming in June of 2014. That case was dismissed in October of 2015 for violations of Local Rule LR2-400. It is unknown whether or not that case is expected to be refiled.

Robinson is also in the process of being prosecuted on charges he picked up in February 2016 for possession of burglary tools and conspiracy.

A judge continued Acosta’s bond at $1 million in cash after he appeared in court on Sunday.

Detectives are urging anyone with information on Robinson’s whereabouts to call police immediately.

Police say not to confront Robinson, as he should be considered armed and dangerous. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
