SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Supreme Court has upheld a murder conviction in a 2014 killing in Roswell.

The court on Monday rejected the arguments of Steven Lee Lucero in the beating and stabbing death of Isaiah Sanchez.

Authorities say Sanchez was lured into his Roswell home as part of a plan to steal his truck.

Lucero was accused of taking Sanchez’s truck, wallet and $15 in cash.

The engine and rims from Sanchez’s truck were later put on Lucero’s truck.
