ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— A homeless man who is accused of stabbing an Albuquerque business owner with a needle filled with heroin failed to show up in court Monday morning.


A bench warrant has now been issued for Shammon Cordova’s arrest.

Prosecutors initially requested that Cordova be held without bond, pending a trial.

However, a judge ordered Cordova to take part in a 30-day drug program and wear an ankle monitor.

The victim said the district attorney’s office told him Cordova cut off the ankle monitor.
