A man has been accused of murdering a woman and shooting her husband because they voted for President Joe Biden.
Joseph Angel Alvarez, 38, was arrested on September 8, almost a year after the shooting.
Authorities say Mr Alvarez monitored the couple’s home before the shooting and found a pro-Biden “Trump flag and doll” hanging outside.
He shot and killed Georgetta Kauffman in her garage on November 14, 2020, then shot her husband Daniel Kaufmann in the head, shoulder and wrist, reports CBS4. Mr. Kaufmann crawled to his bedroom, then managed to escape the attack by running through the front door of a neighbor’s house to call 911.
Mr Alvarez reportedly emailed the 902nd Military Intelligence Group, a counterintelligence unit, saying it was targeting the Kauffmans because they voted for Mr Biden and demanding that people “stop all killing of babies “, reports the El Paso schedules.
He also emailed the military unit to say that the pro-choice supporters were part of the “Satanist Jew” party and that the Kauffman neighborhood was a “ritualistic satanic ground for performing abortions by magic.”
A police officer wrote in an affidavit: “The belief of the accused was to ‘end satanic activity’ near the crime scene [and he] executed his manifesto by killing and shooting the Kaufmanns.
He is currently being held in El Paso County Jail on $ 2.5 million bail.
