High speed chase suspect charged in separate case

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An accused thief charged with killing an innocent man in a police chase in a stolen RV plead guilty Monday in another case.

David Barber, 40, is still awaiting trial for the cross-city chase that ended in the death of driver Tito Pacheco.

Monday, Barber was supposed to go on trial for a 2016 burglary case where he and his girlfriend allegedly broke into a smoke shop.

Instead, Barber agreed to plead guilty to two felonies: criminal damage to property and conspiracy.

He faces up to four years in jail.

He is facing life plus 46-and-a-half years in the RV case as well as two others.
