Kansas Man Indicted on Interstate Stalking and Firearm Charges

OKLAHOMA CITY – Yesterday, a federal grand jury returned a five-count Indictment against Rigoberto Alexander Murillo, 44, of Wichita, Kansas, charging him with interstate stalking, interstate violation of protection order, felon in possession of firearms, possession of unregistered firearms, and unlawful possession of a machinegun, announced U.S. Attorney Robert J. Troester.

According to the Indictment, on or about August 7, 2023, Murillo traveled from Sedgwick County, Kansas to McClain County, Oklahoma with the intent to harass another person. The Indictment further alleges Murillo traveled from Kansas to Oklahoma with the intent to violate a Kansas protective order that prohibited him from contacting the victim. According to the Indictment, Murillo removed a victim’s license plate and battery from their vehicle. Murillo is also charged with (1) possession of firearms after a prior felony conviction, (2) possession of unregistered firearms, and (3) unlawful possession of two machinegun conversion kits, which modify firearms to automatically shoot more than one shot by a single pull of the trigger.

Murillo will be arraigned in federal court on the charges. If found guilty of interstate stalking, interstate violation of protection order, possession of an unregistered firearm, or unlawful possession of a machinegun, he faces up to 10 years in federal prison on each charge. If found guilty of being a felon in possession of firearms, he faces up to 15 years in federal prison.

This case is the result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the McClain County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stan J. West is prosecuting the case.
