SANTA FE, N.M. — Gov. Susana Martinez says the new Katie's Law is a ringing success, as more DNA collections imprison murderers, rapists and car thieves who otherwise might elude police.
Martinez called a news conference last week to say that DNA samples obtained under the enhanced law had led to matches in five murder cases.
