ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque man who police said shot his ex-girlfriend in the face, then shot himself, has been ordered held on $1 million cash only bail.
KRQE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/preQkF) that the bond was set this weekend for Leocadio Rodriguez Rios.
The 36-year-old Rios is charged with aggravated battery resulting in great bodily harm and aggravated assault.
Police say that Rodriguez shot his ex-girlfriend two in the head in July. Police say that Rodriguez was later found a short distance away with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the stomach.
