Man is convicted in aggravated assault case in Alamogordo
ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) — Prosecutors say a man is facing up to 12 ½ years in prison after being convicted of multiple felony charges in a 2017 Alamogordo assault case.
They say 43-year-old Orlando Marroquin was found guilty of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, child abuse and criminal damage to property.
Otero County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the scene of a car crash in August 2017.
They reported seeing a truck ramming an SUV off the roadway and the driver was later identified as Marroquin.
Authorities say Marroquin earlier saw his estranged wife and another man in the SUV and began shooting at them.
They say Marroquin chased the SUV in his truck and eventually crashed into it and rammed the vehicle repeatedly.
