ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man accused of raping and torturing his girlfriend will stay behind bars until trial.

Police say Justin Aragon tied the woman to a chair and beat her with a sledgehammer. He’s also accused of putting a pillowcase over her face, and pouring water over her repeatedly.

She says Aragon was taking her out to the mesa to kill her when she escaped at a gas station.

Judge Cindy Leos ordered Aragon held without bond for the safety of the community and the alleged victim. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
