MAGDALENA, N.M. — Authorities have released the name of a Nebraska man who was killed in New Mexico earlier this week.

New Mexico State Police say the victim was 30-year-old Stuart Gordon of Lincoln.

His name was released after his relatives were notified of his death.

Officials say 39-year-old Jo Hill is jailed without bond on suspicion of an open count of murder.

The Magdalena Marshal's Office was dispatched Monday afternoon to the High Country Lodge about a gunshot victim.
