CARRIZOZO, N.M. (AP) - More testimony is expected in the trial of a Ruidoso woman police says was involved with the shooting death of a woman outside a busy Alamogordo Burger King.

The Alamogordo Daily News reports (https://goo.gl/6KMG39) that Alexias Torres is in the 12th Judicial District Court in Carrizozo this week to face charges for the shooting death of Shavon Twitty in June 2011.

Torres is facing a number of charges, including first-degree murder and second-degree conspiracy to commit murder.

Torres’ defense attorney, Michael Keedy, says his client did not fire the weapon.

Torres is the third defendant to stand trial in 2011 homicide.

A jury convicted Jonathan Montoya in August 2013 of murder, conspiracy and tampering with evidence.

Melissa Mathis pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in May 2013 and was later sentenced to 16 years in prison.
