FARMINGTON — An Aztec woman accused of second-degree murder will be held without bond pending trial.

Cecilia Trujillo, 24, of Aztec, is accused of stabbing Danell Jack, 21, of Bloomfield, twice in the neck on Feb. 18 at a Bloomfield residence, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.

During a hearing Monday in Aztec District Court, District Judge John Dean Jr. ruled in favor of the prosecution's request to hold Trujillo without bond pending trial, according to a copy of the order.

The order states Trujillo was on probation at the time when the new crimes allegedly occurred.

It also states an intimidation of a witness charge has been added to her case after Trujillo was accused of making threats against two people, one of whom is a witness in the alleged homicide.

An amended complaint was filed March 2 in Aztec Magistrate Court to include a second-degree felony count of bribery of a witness (retaliation – bodily injury), according to court records.

Trujillo's preliminary hearing is set for April 6 in Aztec Magistrate Court.
