Travis R. Rowley, charged with two murders in Bernalillo County, New Mexico, had a criminal record in Orange County according to public documents. In June Rowley was sentenced to probation for pleading guilty to petty theft.
The probation was revoked in September, according to those same documents.
Along with Michael Lee, of Boston MA, Rowley, 23, is charged in the brutal beating deaths of Tak Yi and Pung Yi, described as prominent members of Albuquerque’s Korean community.
Rowley confessed to taking part in the killing, according to a police report.
We’ll post up some of these documents later. In the meantime, we’ll continue to look for Rowley’s connections to the SGV.
