New Mexico State Police say they have arrested a Raton man in connection with the deaths of two people this weekend.

Thirty one-year-old Raul Romero is being charged with two counts of murder and five counts of tampering with evidence.

The two victims, one male and the other female, were found in a field three miles south of Raton near I-25.

The bodies were found by fire crews called to the scene of a burning car. The relation of the victims is unknown.

Police are also investigating a second crime scene at the Texan Motel in Raton.

The district court has sealed all court documents in the case until Romero is arraigned.

The identity of the victims has not been released by police until next of kin are notified.
