ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Nearly two months after a man’s body was found still smoldering in the East Mountains, detectives at the Bernalillo County Sheriffs Office arrested an Albuquerque couple who they say are linked to his death.

Craig Smith, 54, has been charged with murder, conspiracy, kidnapping and other crimes and his girlfriend Evonne Jaramillo, 39, has been charged with driving and tampering with evidence.

A spokeswoman for the BCSO said investigators are still looking for other suspects in the case.

Terry Williams, 56, was born on Jan.

Cell phone records led detectives to Smith and Jaramillo.

Detectives who visited Smith at the Albuquerque Housing Authority Thursday were told by his supervisor that he showed up late and recently called in sick, and that he called in sick on the days around Williams’ death. When Smith returned from his lunch break, the detectives arrested him.

Smith told detectives that he and several acquaintances were hanging out at a trailer park near Big I when they were concocting a plan to lure Williams into the area and rob him because they knew the complaint said he was “in large numbers.” Cocaine “sold. He said his truck was used to bring Williams’ plastic-wrapped body to the East Mountains.

Smith also said that he and a friend broke into Williams ‘house and ransacked it looking for drugs or money, but couldn’t find any, so they took Williams’ car.

Detectives are still investigating whether Jaramillo Smith helped break into the house, but they say she helped him steal Williams’ car and leave it at Rio Rancho.

They believe Smith was the one who shot Williams because the bullets in his body matched the bullets and guns they found in his trailer and truck, according to the lawsuit.
