[ARCHIVED] Police ID Woman Found Dead on East Lucero Avenue

Blue and Red Police Lights Update

Las Cruces police have identified the woman who was shot Wednesday on east Lucero Avenue as 42-year-old Rachel Miranda.
 About 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25, Las Cruces police were dispatched to the report of a gunshot victim at a home on the 400 block of east Lucero Avenue. Officers arrived to find Miranda with at least one gunshot wound. She was pronounced deceased on scene.
 David Aguilar, 26, identified as Miranda’s boyfriend, was arrested Wednesday evening and charged with a felony count of voluntary manslaughter, and one count of receipt or possession of a firearm by a felon. Another man believed to be at the residence at the time of the shooting, 29-year-old Margarito Serena, was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
