Albert Gene Hunsaker II, of Carson Estates, was arrested for Chaney's death after he was picked up and interviewed by New Mexico State Police Wednesday.
Police were first tipped off to new information in the case Monday, when a state police detective was contacted by a California detective, who said a man named Clayton Jones had said during an investigation into a murder in California that he had also killed Chaney...
According to the criminal complaint, the three had a few drinks and drove to a ridge near the Petaca River bed, where Jones allegedly beat Chaney and tried to choke her... Jones then wrapped a winch wire around her neck, told Hunsaker to turn it on, and then started driving through the brush, dragging her to death.

During an interview with New Mexico State Police, Hunsaker admitted his participation in the crime, the statement says. According to police, Hunsaker described a brutal attack on Chaney. Hunsaker told police Jones had threatened to kill his family if he did not help Jones with the murder, the statement says.
No charges have yet been filed in New Mexico against Jones for Chaney’s death, according to online court records.
