Dead Men Walking

In Brief

November 16, 2011, 12:00 am




On Nov. 10, the New Mexico Supreme Court affirmed the conviction and two life sentences of Robert Ray Fry in a 1996 Farmington double murder. Fry is currently one of two New Mexico inmates on death row; the court upheld his conviction and death sentence in another case in 2005. The other death row inmate, Timothy Allen, was convicted of the kidnapping, murder and attempted rape of a 17-year-old girl. The high-profile case of Michael Astorga, for whom prosecutors have sought the death sentence for allegedly killing a Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department deputy in 2006, two years before New Mexico outlawed capital punishment, is still pending.
