Twin Falls Woman Arrested in Arizona in Connection to Double Homicide

BOISE, Idaho — A Twin Falls woman was arrested in Arizona on Wednesday for drug charges and aiding in murder in connection to the Twin Falls shooting that left two dead.

The Twin Falls Police Department on Thursday said 40-year-old Angelica M. Martinez was arrested in Phoenix, Arizona, and booked into the Maricopa County Jail on an arrest warrant, with charges of possession of meth and cocaine.

She also faces two counts of aiding and abetting murder in connection to the deadly Dec. 1 shooting on Kimberly Road in Twin Falls that left 26-year-old Jamie Bravo and 36-year-old Jesse Ortiz dead.

“This arrest is a result of the collaborative work between our dedicated investigators and community members who came forward with valuable information,” Captain Matthew Hicks said in a news release. “Our team has been working tirelessly to investigate this crime and we will continue to do so until we find who committed these murders, said Captain Matthew Hicks.”

As KTVB previously reported, Twin Falls Police said they were called to The Tint Shop for a report of shots fired around 8:20 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1. When they arrived, they found Bravo and Ortiz dead.

“While we cannot provide specific details about the ongoing investigation at this time, we want to assure the community that we are dedicating all available resources to bring those responsible for this heinous crime to justice,” Hicks said in a Dec. 2 news release.

Twin Falls Police posted two videos of the suspects to their YouTube page as the investigation into the double homicide got underway. Authorities believe one of the suspects linked to the deadly shooting goes by the nickname ‘El Guero.’

Police are still investigating the incident and If you have any information, you are asked to contact the Twin Falls Police Department at (208) 735-4357 or detective Morgan Waite at (208) 735-7227.
