Man Charged With Murder in Laramie County Homicide
A Greeley, Colorado man arrested in connection with a Laramie County homicide investigation has been charged with first-degree murder.
Yigner Rodrigo Turcios-Romero, also known as Rodrigo Vigner Turcios-Romero, 31, made his initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court Thursday afternoon.
Turcios-Romero is accused of shooting and killing a 37-year-old man at a home in the 300 block of County Road 161 on Sept. 4.
Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Jeff Lambing says they know who the victim is, but they can't release his identity because next of kin hasn't been notified.
"(We) believe he's from Greeley (but) we've still not verified that," Lambing said.
Turcios-Romero is currently being held in the Laramie County jail without bond. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 16 at 11 a.m.
