The man accused of killing New Mexico State Police Officer Justin Hare near Tucumcari will be arraigned Thursday on new federal charges.

Last week, a federal grand jury indicted Jaremy Smith for carjacking resulting in death, causing death by the discharge of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, kidnapping resulting in death, being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm and interstate transport of a stolen vehicle.

According to court documents. Smith killed Hare on March 15 after Hare stopped to help him with a flat tire on I-40.

Smith approached the passenger side of Hare’s patrol vehicle and shot him with a Taurus 9mm pistol that he had stolen from South Carolina.

Afterward, Smith walked to the driver’s side window and shot Hare two more times.

Smith then jumped into Hare’s patrol vehicle and drove west on I-40 before taking the first exit. About seven miles down the road, Smith removed Hare from the vehicle and then took off. He eventually crashed the patrol vehicle in Guadalupe County, New Mexico.

Smith was arrested in Albuquerque on March 17.

He's a person of interest in the murder of a paramedic in South Carolina. According to court records, Phonesia Machado-Fore died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Smith was driving Machado-Fore's BMW when Hare stopped to help him.

If convicted of the current federal charges, Smith faces a mandatory life sentence or death for the kidnapping resulting in death charge, and up to life or death for the carjacking and discharge of a firearm offenses.
