Examples of Homicide in a Sentence

    I learned that Patrick Frazee had committed a homicide on approximately Nov. 22, 2018 in Teller County. I knew that law enforcement would be investigating that crime. I moved the victim's cell phone with the intent to impair the phone's availability in the investigation.

  4. Ross County Prosecutor Matt Schmidt:

    At this point, there’s no smoking gun that says, ‘Hey, we’ve got a serial killer on the loose,’ we have missing people and we have a homicide. There are certainly people talking in the community and people that are upset and understandably concerned about that. When there are those concerns, we don’t rule that out. We have to keep an open mind to the possibilities, but the evidence is going to dictate where we go with the investigation.

  5. John Sen. Kennedy:

    Good intentions sometimes have nothing to do with actual consequences, we were told that this would only allow low-level, nonviolent criminals to go free. I didnt believe it, and I didnt believe it because I read the bill. And now we find out that in the first traunch of prisoners let free, 500 committed weapons or explosive crimes, 250 committed sex crimes, I think there were 60 or 70 that were guilty of homicide or aggravated assault. And those are not low-level, nonviolent criminals.
