From the Las Vegas Optic

The search for a missing Las Vegas woman ended with the discovery of charred human remains in Mora County. Two people have been arrested in connection to the death, according to Las Vegas police.

Amber J. Archuleta, 28, and John T. Sanders, 24, face multiple charges in the death of 29-year-old Cassandra Lucero of Las Vegas. Archuleta and Sanders were arrested Oct. 28 and booked into the San Miguel County Detention Center.

Lucero was reported missing Sept. 28, though, according to court records, police believe she’d been missing since Sept. 21. An arrest affidavit filed in Mora Magistrate Court shows that by Oct. 9, investigators had learned Lucero had been killed, and Archuleta was a suspect.
