ALBUQUERQUE - Yesterday afternoon, Anderson Humphrey was convicted in Judge Brett Loveless's courtroom of Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon, Conspiracy, and Tampering with Evidence. As a habitual offender, Humphrey faces an 8-year Habitual Offender Enhancement on each charge for a total exposure of 31 years at sentencing. Sentencing is pending.
On May 14, 2016, Humphrey and accomplices dragged a homeless man with mental health issues into an apartment. Humphrey then pistol-whipped and stabbed the victim in the neck. He then forced the victim to strip naked, clean off the blood in the shower, and left him there before police arrived. Humphrey has a felony criminal history out of Texas that includes theft, felony larceny, and cocaine trafficking.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Larissa Callaway and John Duran, aided by Mia Ulibarri, Marissa Lucero, and Geriann Sandoval. Albuquerque Police Officers Ruben Abeyta, Joseph Montoya and Steve Lowell were the principal case agents.
