NM: Murder Trial of David Griego, 71 Not Guilty of Murder, Guilty of Weapons Charge

David Griego, 71, was charged with second-degree murder and unlawful carrying of a deadly weapon, according to online court records. Griego was found guilty on the misdemeanor weapons charge but acquitted of murder. A trespassing charge was also dismissed.

A news release from 4th Judicial District Attorney Thomas Clayton’s office Wednesday stated the facts of the case were not in dispute, but rather Griego’s motive for killing 66-year-old John Serna.

“The defendant claimed self-defense — asserting the past history between himself and Serna and alleged that Serna attacked him with a rock on that morning,” the release read.
