Accused Getaway Driver Bound Over in Cheyenne Teen’s Murder
Circuit Court Judge Antoinette Williams on Friday, June 2, found probable cause to bind 16-year-old Julian Espinoza over on charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and aiding and abetting first-degree murder.
His co-defendant, 17-year-old Johnny Munoz, was bound over on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder on May 18 and is set to be arraigned next Thursday, June 8, at 9 a.m.
Police say a group of the girl's friends and family members were playing basketball at the time, and a 17-year-old boy on the court returned fire with a handgun, but the SUV was not hit and Espinoza drove off.
Williams kept Espinoza's bond at $250,000 cash, the same as Munoz's.
