ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) 02/04 — The husband and father of a woman and teenager killed after two suspected car thieves crashed into them says he’s relieved the second suspect has been arrested.
David Arredondo said in an interview with KRQE-TV he was relieved that 24-year-old Paul Garcia was arrested, calling it the best news he’s gotten since the stolen car’s driver, Elexus Groves, was arrested.
Police in Edgewood on Thursday arrested Garcia after a tipster spotted him at a Walmart.
Garcia was in a stolen car that was fleeing from police when it crashed into a family, killing 14-year-old Shaylee Boling on Jan. 18. Her mother, Shaunna Arredondo-Boling, died on Tuesday.
Groves was arrested two days after the crash and charged with homicide and multiple other charges.
