Man Pleads Guilty To Murder of Amarillo Woman

A murder case finally comes to a close nearly eight years after an Amarillo woman's body was found in New Mexico.

Narciso Cuellar pleaded guilty to the murder of 54 year old Jacqueline Ann Wunch, back in 1999. Wunch's body was found thrown in a drainage area in Bernalillo County, New Mexico. Initially, Wunch was reported missing by her employer at Bivins Memorial Nursing Home.

It was years before law enforcement identified the body found in New Mexico as Wunch. Wunch lived at the Broncho Motel, and that's where police believe the murder happened.

Last year Narciso Cuellar was arrested in Modest, California on burglary charges.  Police say he then implicated himself in Wunch's murder.
