PUEBLO – The woman considered a person of interest in the September 25th  killing of 64-year-old Parvez Daruwala is now charged with first-degree murder.

38-year-old Lupe Flores was arrested last week when she crashed into a home on Abriendo Avenue.

At the time, Flores was charged with driving while under the influence, robbery for a carjacking on Solar Drive, plus theft and criminal mischief for an incident on W. Northern Ave.  Police say all of those incidents happened on Friday.
