By studying homicide cases we not only see how the judicial system functioned and how societies dealt with violent crime, but we also get a good insight into the values and beliefs of that society. The conclusion discusses what we know about this society based solely on information found in the murder cases. Page 2 Page 3 One New Mexico under Mexico, 18211846 For twenty-five years the flag of Mexico flew over the sparsely settled, remote, frontier region of New Mexico. That turbulent quarter-century began with Mexico's independence from Spain in 1821, and ended with the United States' annexation of the area in 1846.

However, this pattern varied with different cases. 42 The sumaria, or fact-finding phase of the judicial proceedings, was now over. The second phase, known as the plenario or juicio plenario, was when the contest between the defense and prosecution unfolded. Cutter's description of plenario in colonial New Mexico is similar to what is found in homicide cases during the Mexican Era. 43 Cutter suggested that local authorities attempted to comply with regulations regarding the plenario, but due to lack of trained legal personnel this stage in the proceedings was often inconsistent with the norm or even absent.

6 Manuel Armijo was perhaps the most notorious character of the Mexican Era; he was closely involved in all the major events that occurred in that turbulent quarter-century. 8 He was a trader and merchant in the prosperous Santa Fe trade. Armijo was a controversial figure, sometimes the hero and often the villain. He played a major role in the Rebellion of 1837 and the Texas Invasion of 1841. 9 Finally, Armijo has gone down in history as the governor who deserted New Mexico when conquering American troops marched into Santa Fe in the fall of 1846 at the start of the Mexican-American War.
