DailyKenn.com — Taryn Allen and Samantha Cisneros, both 23, were fatally shot in Clovis, NM.

Alek Isaiah Collins, 26, is charged with two counts of murder, one count of kidnapping and two counts of child abuse.

He is accused of kidnapping a baby, killing her mother and another woman, and shooting a 5-year-old girl near Clovis. He was arrested in Abilene, TX.

Allen and Cisneros were found dead at a park. Alongside them, a 5-year-old girl was discovered with a gunshot wound, clinging to life. The scene also revealed a stroller, baby bottle, car seat, and baby clothes, suggesting the presence of children. Witnesses reported hearing gunshots, leading police to find shell casings and initiate an investigation.

Evidence, including a Dollar Tree receipt and cell phone data, linked Cisneros, Allen, and their children to the park and a subsequent shopping trip. Further inquiry uncovered that Eleia, a 10-month-old, was missing. Collins, associated with Eleia's disappearance, was located at a Texas residence, where Eleia was found unharmed. Collins confessed to taking Eleia but denied involvement in the shooting.

Collins' history includes threatening the FBI and admitting to kidnapping.
