The state high court on Thursday upheld Donald Ferran’s convictions from Rio Arriba County for two counts of first-degree murder and one count of tampering with evidence.

Ferran was convicted of killing 28-year-old Joey Maestas and 26-year-old Sara Salazar. He allegedly lured them to a highway rest area by pretending to have gun out of gas.
