SANTA FE, N.M. (KFDA) - The New Mexico Supreme Court affirmed the conviction of a Clovis man found guilty of murder.

Daniel Marson Murrell will remain in prison for felony murder, armed robbery, theft of a credit card, eleven counts of fraudulent use of an illegally obtained credit card, and tampering with evidence.

The court also upheld the conviction of a Tularosa man convicted of first degree murder, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, and tampering with evidence pursuant to a plea agreement.

"Two men convicted of heinous and brutal murders in eastern New Mexico will stay in prison after the Supreme Court agreed with our office's Criminal Appeals Division," said Attorney General Hector Balderas. "Keeping the most violent offenders in prison remains our top priority, and my thoughts are with the families of the victims."
