FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) – Authorities say an arrest has been made in a murder case in Farmington last year.
Farmington police say 32-year-old Timothy Serrano was taken into custody Tuesday.
He’s being held at the San Juan County Detention Center under a $750,000 cash bond on suspicion of an open count of murder and tampering with evidence.
Serrano is a Farmington resident. It’s unclear if Serrano has a lawyer yet.
Police were called out last Sept. 14 to the Rimrock Inn and found the body of 62-year-old Dalton Ford on the floor in one of the rooms.
Authorities still haven’t released details of the homicide case.
Police say their investigation still is ongoing.
