A man wanted in connection with the shooting death of a Roswell woman six years ago was arrested in Albuquerque Wednesday after Roswell Police Department investigators learned the suspect was living there.

Matthew Sifuentes, 36, will be returned to Roswell to face first-degree murder and tampering with evidence charges in the 2014 shooting death of 31-year-old Jessica Torrez, according to a press release issued by RPD.

RPD’s investigation in the years following the shooting led to an arrest warrant being obtained within the past several weeks.

Albuquerque law enforcement authorities, with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service, were able to locate Sifuentes and make the arrest Wednesday around 11:30 p.m. after being notified by Roswell police.

Torrez was found shot to death in her home in the 1500 block of North Montana Avenue the morning of May 1, 2014, according to the press release.
