Alamogordo Man Arrested In Murder

Alamogordo – Authorities have charged a 26-year-old man with an open count of first-degree murder in a fatal shooting.

Bond was set at $100,000 cash for James Luke Miller Jr. of Oscuro, who was jailed in the Lincoln County Detention Center in Carrizozo.

District Attorney Diana Martwick says her office is not releasing the name of the dead man pending notification of his relatives.

Lincoln County Magistrate Court records say deputies were called to a house off of U.S. 54 Monday evening about a man with a gunshot wound.

Court records say the man was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds.
