Teen murder suspect to remain in jail until trial
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Albuquerque teenager will stay in jail until he goes on trial for allegedly murdering another teen last month.
Investigators say 16-year-old Jacob Lovato shot and killed 17-year-old Gabriel Gurule during a fight over a gun deal.
Judge Bruce Fox ordered Lovato will stay in jail, in part based on a previous ruling in juvenile court.
The court also arraigned Lovato. He pleaded not guilty Tuesday to an open count of murder, armed robbery and tampering with evidence.
