Teen accused of murdering two homeless men expected in court


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – One of the three teens who pleaded guilty to his role in the murders of two homeless men is expected in court Tuesday.

Gilbert Tafoya will find out Tuesday if he will be sentenced as an adult or as a juvenile.

Tafoya and two others beat the homeless men to death with bricks and cinderblocks in a lot on Central Avenue in 2014.

The defense is expected to file a motion compelling the state to record Tafoya’s psychological evaluation.
