CLOVIS --One man's been charged for the murder of 33 year old Jose Barrera.

Jose Barrera was found dead in his home earlier this week, from an apparent gunshot wound.

An investigation by police led them to Eric Valdez, also known as "Spanky". Valdez was arrested Friday evening on an unrelated charge.

Police say Valdez "acknowledged his participation in the homicide of Mr. Barrera as the shooter."

According to Valdez, the incident stemmed from an argument between he and Barrera.

Eric Valdez was charged with an open count of 1st Degree Murder and Tampering with Evidence. He has been booked into the Curry County Detention Center.
