No bond for man suspected in a New Mexico homicide case

New Mexico

New Mexico State Police say a man suspected in a murder case in Magdalena is jailed without bond.

They say Jo Hill is being held on suspicion of an open count of murder.

It was unclear Tuesday if Hill has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.

The Magdalena Marshals Office was dispatched to High Country Lodge on Monday afternoon on a call of a gunshot victim.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene and the New Mexico State Police Investigations Bureau was called to investigate the homicide.

They say Hill and the victim got into a physical altercation in the parking lot of the lodge.

Hill then reportedly shot the victim.

State Police say the victim’s name won’t be released until his relatives are notified.
