The man accused of shooting and killing a Rociada man will remain in jail as he awaits trial.

William Daniels, 60, was charged in the slaying of 46-year-old Roman Latimer Lucero after the two men got into an argument along New Mexico Highway 276 in Rociada on Oct. 27.

In the State’s motion for pretrial detention, filed in San Miguel County Magistrate Court on Oct. 30, Fourth District Chief Deputy Attorney Tom Clayton said Daniels “poses a danger to the community,” citing that he admitted to the shooting, and that a witness saw Daniels shoot Lucero multiple times and continue firing even after Lucero had fallen to the ground.
