He was the main ring-leader in the anti-Rosas faction which caused this Governor's death, January 25, 1642. He was also the leader of the people who defied the Governor by barricading themselves with the friars at Santa Domingo pueblo. His turbulent career ended on July 21 1643 when he was beheaded with others in Santa Fé.
