El Paso County pair arrested for murder

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office arrested a male and female suspect in the murder of a 55-year-old male.

According to an arrest warrant, a 47-year-old woman admitted to luring an ex-boyfriend to her home at North Ellicott Highway in order to kill him, but originally reported the crime as a home invasion and burglary.

The arrest affidavit said during questioning, the woman said she lured the man into her home to make it look like he had entered without permission so that he could be killed by her new boyfriend.

She allegedly told the victim to walk through the unlocked front door, where the 48-year-old boyfriend was waiting with a 12-gauge shotgun.

In addition, police discovered a voicemail of the male suspect saying he was anticipating shooting the victim with the same type of gun.

The affidavit went on to say the victim pled with the male suspect before being shot in the abdomen.

Afterwards, police say, the female suspect took a cell phone from the victim, who was still alive.

She denied stealing any of the $700 the victim's friends claimed he had on him.

After the incident, the victim was transported to Colorado Springs Hospital where he was pronounced dead of a shotgun wound in the lower torso.

According to a spokesman for the sheriff's office, the female and male suspects were arrested and charged with first-degree murder, aggravated robbery, tampering with physical evidence and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

In a case such as this, the defendants could possibly lose not only their freedom, but their lives. It could never be more important to have an experienced attorney to capably present an effective defense.
