Halloween curfew request denied for woman charged in South Valley murder

Marissa Sepulveda

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The mom accused of murder asking to take her daughter trick-or-treating did not get her wish. In fact, she ended up walking out of court Tuesday a convicted killer.

Marisa Sepulveda was accused of the drive-by shooting that killed 18-year-old Aliyah Garcia last year near Atrisco and Arenal.

Sepulveda was asking a judge to extend her curfew Tuesday past 8 p.m. so she could take her daughter out for Halloween. The judge said he saw no good reason to grant the request.

Then, Sepulveda, who is accused of ordering the shooting that night, pleaded no contest to charges.

Sepulveda was looking at nine years in prison. As part of Tuesday’s plea, prosecutors agreed to cap it at five years.
