ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque man has been indicted in the alleged sexual assault and kidnapping of a Rio Rancho teenager in 2013.


New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas announced Thursday that the Bernalillo County grand jury indicted Eli Kronenanker on four counts of criminal sexual penetration plus single counts of kidnapping, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, intimidation of a witness and sexual exploitation of children.

The AG's Office had filed more charges earlier this month against Kronenanker in a case that had been dropped by local prosecutors after it was discovered evidence had been destroyed.

He also faces charges in a separate rape case being prosecuted by the Bernalillo County District Attorney's Office.

Kronenanker's attorney says she needs to see what evidence prosecutors plan to present before commenting on the cases.
