Criminal charges were filed Aug. 21 against a second Roswell man in connection with the murder of a local woman inside a hotel room in the north part of the city earlier this month.

Roswell Police Department detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Frank Moss, 29 (pictured). They are now asking for the public’s assistance with information that could help locate Moss. Moss is charged with tampering with evidence, intimidation of a witness, and felon in possession of a handgun.

The charges are connected to the shooting death of 31-year-old Ashley Sena of Roswell, whose body was found the afternoon of Aug. 4 when hotel staff entered a room at Comfort Suites in the 3600 block of North Main Street. She had been shot once in the face.

Sena’s boyfriend, Jeremy Hawkins, 35, of Roswell, was arrested Aug. 19 in Albuquerque by U.S. marshals who served a warrant obtained Aug. 18 by RPD detectives. Hawkins is accused of shooting Sena. Hawkins is charged with an open count of murder, tampering with evidence, felon in possession of a firearm, and two counts of intimidation of a witness.

The tampering with evidence charge against Moss stems from his allegedly going to the hotel room after the shooting – but prior to Sena’s body being discovered in the room by hotel staff – and collecting Hawkins’ possessions and returning them to the murder suspect. The other charges against Moss, who has at least one prior felony conviction in the past 10 years, are based on investigators’ belief Moss had a gun with him when he allegedly threatened a potential witness in this case.

Anyone with potential information regarding the whereabouts of Frank Moss is asked to call the Roswell Police Department at (575) 624-6770 or Chaves County Crime Stoppers at 1-888-594-TIPS(8477).
