ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police are investigating another homicide in southeast Albuquerque, just hours after a man was shot and killed outside the M&M gas station

Police were responding to a suspicious persons call around 3:30 a.m. at the 400 block of Maria Court SE, near Gibson and Broadway. A woman was reportedly at a nearby residence claiming her mother was dead. 

When officers arrived, they said they found the woman and the body of the woman's mother, Katherine Garcia, inside the home with multiple stab wounds.

"Officers checked the residence and located a female in the living room with severe trauma," APD spokesperson Gilbert Gallegos said. "Officers also located a male in a bedroom with evidence of the trauma on both of his hands." 

Albuquerque Fire Rescue was called as officers detained the suspect who was later identified as 36-year-old Christoper 'CJ' Wall. 

A large kitchen knife with blood and a hunting knife were recovered from the scene.
