ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Prosecutors are pushing forward with their request to hold two people accused of a trio of murders without bond.

Earlier this month Yoan Santiesteban and Gloria Chavez were arrested by State Police in Santa Rosa.

They are accused of killing Samir al Abboudy during a robbery at the Days Inn on Menaul. Then a woman off Zuni and 26-year-old Matthew Severinghaus during a robbery near Montgomery and Tramway.

Santiesteban is facing so many charges that both sides had to decide in court Tuesday whether there should be three separate hearings or one. The judge opted for one.

Santiesteban’s hearing will be Wednesday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
