SANTA FE, N.M. A fugitive who stabbed a man to death in Santa Fe won’t fight extradition to New Mexico, authorities said.
According to the New Mexican, Ernesto Valdez was arrested in Enfield, Maine by State Police this week, a year after authorities say he removed an ankle monitor and fled New Mexico, violating his probation for second-degree murder.
He and his brother pleaded guilty back in 2010 for killing Orlando Haws near Santa Fe’s railyard district during a fight about a woman. He will be taken back to New Mexico in the coming days.
