ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Alexander M.M. Uballez, United States Attorney for the District of New Mexico, announced today that Kylie Lujan was arraigned on an indictment charging her with assault resulting in serious bodily injury in Indian Country.

A federal grand jury indicted Lujan on Sept. 13. According to the indictment, on March 25, Lujan assaulted the victim, identified as Jane Doe, in the victim’s home in Taos Pueblo. Jane Doe is an enrolled member of the Taos Pueblo, and the assault resulted in serious bodily injury.

The Taos Pueblo Department of Public Safety investigated this case. Assistant United States Attorney Matthew McGinley is prosecuting the case.
