ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New details have emerged about the man accused of killing five people, including three of his own family members.

KRQE News 13 has learned what was said during a phone call after Damian Herrera allegedly tricked a jail guard and attacked another.

Last month, Damian Herrera lashed out in the Rio Arriba County jail, where he was finally subdued.

According to jail phone call recordings obtained by the Journal, Herrera told a female family member that he was not behaving well and needed medical attention.

He also said he was feeling “really sick” and said he “needed to leave this place.”

Herrera remains behind bars.
