ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Albuquerque police say they’re investigating two homicides that happened within hours of one another Saturday.

Authorities identified the woman as Shania Spencer. They later arrested Jesus Sanchez, accusing him of shooting her in the forehead and killing her. Sanchez will remain behind bars as his case goes through the judicial process.
