Judge denies bond reduction for Las Cruces woman charged with murder

Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 1:03am

A district court judge denied a bond reduction for a Las Cruces woman accused of killing another woman last October.

Jacklyne Legarreta, 23, is charged with murder for allegedly stabbing and killing Delia Vasquez at a house party.

Legarreta has been locked up at the Dona Ana County Detention Center under a $150,000 bond.

Defense Attorney Joe Coronado was hoping to have that bond cut in half to help family come up with the money.

Judge Fernando Macias denied a reduction this morning citing there is no significant reason to reduce her bond.

Coronado said he plans to appeal the ruling because there is no factual evidence Legarreta is a flight risk or a danger to the community.

A trial date has been set for June 24th.
