Suspect wanted in fatal shooting extradited to Albuquerque

March 25, 2019

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a woman wanted in connection with a fatal shooting in Albuquerque last year has been extradited to New Mexico to face charges.

KRQE-TV reports 37-year-old Latrice Thomas was arrested recently in California after being on the run since May.

Authorities say she likely will be arraigned on the open count of murder.

It was unclear Sunday if Thomas has a lawyer yet.

Albuquerque police say 27-year-old Hilarie Humbles was found dead at an apartment complex last summer.

Police say they believe the two women got into an argument after Humbles helped Thomas move, but Thomas refused to pay for Humbles’ help.

Police identified Thomas as the person who allegedly shot and killed Humbles.

The case was one of the unsolved homicides featured on the Albuquerque Police Department’s website.
