Court proceedings have begun for the three men arrested as suspects in the murder of a Denver woman whose body was burned after she was shot.
The remains of Cymone Reyna Duran, 28, were discovered around 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 5 by Pleasant View and Golden firefighters who were putting out a small brush fire near the intersection of Nile Street and West Seventh Avenue, which is in the vicinity of I-70 and West Colfax Avenue just outside Golden.
Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies responded to investigate and discovered that Duran, a Denver resident, had been shot multiple times before being set on fire.
Arrest affidavits remain sealed, so no further information on the incident is available.
The suspects are Abel Gallegos, 35; Alonso Quintana, 27; and Rene Rosales, 35. Charges against them were filed on Nov. 16.
Charges vary slightly for each man, as each has been charged according to his alleged participation in the crime.
Duran was a mother of two young daughters.
Gallegos faces 19 charges, with 11 of them felonies; Quintana faces 13 charges, with seven of them felonies; and Rosales faces nine charges, with four of them felonies.
Both Gallegos and Quintana face two counts of first-degree murder, second-degree kidnapping, possession of a weapon by a previous offender and retaliation against a witness or victim. Rosales faces a felony charge of accessory to a crime of first-degree murder.
Gallegos and Rosales are both being charged with tampering with a deceased body and tampering with physical evidence.
Gallegos is being charged with second-degree assault and possession with intent to manufacture or distribute a controlled substance. Quintana faces a felony charge of violation of bail bond conditions.
All three men face a felony charge of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, and non-felony charges of being a habitual criminal.
Gallegos and Quintana are being held without bond. A bond amount of $250,000 was set for Rosales on Nov. 16.
All three suspects remain in the custody of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and appeared in front of the judge on Nov. 27. The court set Jan. 3 for a motions hearing, and each will have their preliminary hearing beginning at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 20, which may continue into the next day.
