EDDY COUNTY, NM (KWES) -

One woman was arrested in connection to the 2015 shooting death of Keith Riley in Eddy County.

Authorities say back on April 22, 2015 deputies were called out to a motel in Whites City, New Mexico on a report of a man with a gunshot wound to his chest. Once there, deputies found Riley dead in motel room.

Detectives spoke with several witnesses at the time including Adrianna Elizondo who is the mother of Riley’s then 8-month-old child.

Witnesses at the hotel told authorities that Riley and Elizondo had been fighting for 3 straight days and that they could be heard yelling at each other.

The witnesses also said they could hear multiple incidents of physical domestic violence incidents, ultimately leading up to the shooting.

Chief Deputy Mark Cage says Elizondo was arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder.
