A New Mexico woman accused of murdering her newborn in a hospital bathroom when she was a teenager recently won a significant legal victory and now the state is looking to undo that win — all but certainly pushing back a trial that was set to begin next month.

Alexee Trevizo, 20, has appeared in court exactly once so far — in August 2023. During that appearance, her defense attorney, Gary C. Mitchell, successfully argued for the suppression of some key pieces of evidence the state had planned to use against her.

In response, District Attorney Dianna Luce, who represents Eddy, Lea, and Chaves Counties in the Land of Enchantment, has asked the state’s highest court to salvage the high-profile case.
