KING CITY — King City Police Department has arrested a local woman for aiding and abetting a known suspect involved in last December’s triple murder.

Over the past year, the department has been investigating the Dec. 26, 2021, shooting that killed King City residents Carlos Lopez, 20, and Selena Godoy, 18, as well as Godoy’s unborn child.

Seven suspects have previously been arrested for their involvement in the murders.

“Although arrests have been made of all parties suspected to be involved in the actual commission of the homicides, detectives continued reviewing investigative materials to determine if members of the public aided and abetted any known suspect in their ability to avoid arrest,” police said in a news release Wednesday.

Recently, detectives developed “probable cause” to believe Jazmin Aviles, a 25‐year‐old resident of King City, aided and abetted a known suspect in the investigation to avoid arrest, police said.

Aviles was arrested Wednesday morning and booked into the Monterey County Jail. Officers also executed a search warrant at Aviles’ residence in the 400 block of Amanda Lane in King City.

“King City Police Department would like to thank the California Department of Corrections Parole Division for their assistance during this operation,” police said.

Anyone with further information regarding this case is encouraged to contact Detective Juan Rodriguez at 831‐386‐5922 or [email protected]; or the WeTip line at 1‐800‐78‐CRIME.
