A Lovington woman is behind bars for a murder that happened last year.

Naomi Juarez was arrested last week and is still behind bars at the Lea County Detention Center on a $1 million bond.

Back in April of 2011, Alfredo Gonzalez was found dead on State Toad 457 with his hands and feet tied.

Fast forward to September 2012, that's when Lea County Sheriff's Department got some information from a witness that painted Juarez as a suspect.

According to a press release, the witness said they knew about phone conversations between Juarez and another person talking about the details of the murder.
