Yuma man accused of murdering a woman formally charged

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Yuma man accused of murder and attempted murder was formally charged with multiple felonies Tuesday in court. 

28-year-old Alexander Delcid was formally charged with five counts, including two of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder.

The judge also set a new bond of $2 million. 

Yuma police said 35-year-old Alexis Rodriguez was murdered last week in a parking lot while she was inside a vehicle and was confirmed by police that she was pregnant.

A 34-year-old man who was with the woman was also shot.

Yuma police say they believe it was a targeted shooting.

We talked to someone who lives in the area of the shooting who said he’s concerned. 

“Of course, we feel scared yeah and nervous… and that is why we close this one, close this and if there is someone outside then we just saw the person," said Jonathan who lives near the shooting.

We spoke with the suspect’s soon-to-be ex-wife who shared with us that he did get out of prison and was doing well for a couple of months before he changed.

She said he started hanging out with other people and something changed, and not for the good.

That’s when she says she left him shortly after.

The soon-to-be ex-wife said she’s known the victim for about 18 years and offered her condolences to the family.
