CHAPARRAL, N.M. (AP) — Authorities in southern New Mexico say a woman is in custody after allegedly shooting her live-in boyfriend in Chaparral.

Dona Ana County Sheriff’s investigators say 37-year-old Margarita Flores is [auth] being held on suspicion of attempted murder.

They say she remained in jail Monday on a $75,000 secured bond.

Flores told investigators she thought she had been stabbed during an argument with her boyfriend Sunday evening.

But medical examiners at a Las Cruces-area hospital didn’t find any evidence to substantiate that claim.

Authorities say the man was shot multiple times in the torso and was transported to an El Paso-area hospital in critical condition. His name hasn’t been released.

Chaparral is located north of El Paso and south of Las Cruces.
