Albuquerque, NM – On March 14, 2012, Hugo Banda
allegedly attempted to kill his estranged wife in Southwest Albuquerque. The
victim told police she was dropping their children off at the babysitter’s
when she observed Hugo Banda, her estranged husband, walking on the side of
the road. The victim told Police she stopped to see if Banda needed a ride.
When Banda entered the vehicle he allegedly began beating his wife by
punching her in the face. The victim said that she felt a sharp pain in her
right side. That is when Banda stabbed his wife. The victim also told police
she was being restrained in the vehicle and was unable to get free.
Eventually, the victim was able to pull free of Banda’s grasp and jumped out
of the vehicle. Once she was outside of the vehicle, Banda got behind the
driver’s seat and intentionally drove the vehicle into the victim striking
her and then drove back over the victim.
