Luke Sanchez – Charged with Murder – Dismissed

Luke Sanchez – Charged with Murder – Dismissed

Luke Sanchez was driving back home to his Valencia County farm on July 4, 2009, when he observed a nearby propane dealership being burglarized by Gary Gabaldon and others. He called 911, followed Gabaldon for the dispatcher while remaining on the phone until Gabaldon stopped his vehicle and raced back toward Luke’s truck, then shattered in the window in an unprovoked attack. In self defense, Luke Sanchez fired one shot and killed Gabaldon. Luke was prosecuted for murder, was represented by Mr. Twohig, and the case was dismissed at preliminary hearing at the close of the prosecution evidence on the ground that it was justifiable homicide.
