Aug. 18, 2017
ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — An arrest warrant has been issued for a man accused of fatally shooting a woman during an argument inside a Roswell hotel room.
Roswell police filed the criminal complaint in court Friday and obtained an arrest warrant for 35-year-old Jeremy Hawkins, who remains at large.
They say Hawkins is facing an open count of murder and four other criminal counts in connection with the death of 31-year-old Ashley Sena of Roswell.
Sena is believed to have been Hawkins' girlfriend.
Her body was found Aug. 4 in a hotel room.
Police say Sena had been shot once in the face.
They say Hawkins cannot legally possess a firearm because he has a prior felony conviction for child abuse.
