The Rio Arriba County Sheriff's office has two suspects in custody as it continues its investigation into an Thursday evening homicide in Northern New Mexico.

A male in his late 60's was found dead in his Chimayo home by a caretaker around noon Friday. He has been identified as Rudy Montoya.

A spokesperson for the department told KOB Eyewitness News 4 Friday afternoon that one female suspect was already in in jail on unrelated charges.

The Sheriff's Office is now telling us they've arrested a second female suspect, and that both the women have given incriminating statements in the case.

A third female suspect is in the hospital with life threatening injuries of unknown origin.

The Sheriff's Office is not releasing any of the suspects' names at this time.

As a result of the investigation, other crimes were discovered that were solved in connection with State Police, Española Police and the Sheriff's Office.
