A person was murdered in their Colorado home and now the Weld County Sheriff’s Office now says the man responsible was charged with first-degree homicide.
On May 11, around 7:30 a.m., police responded to a report of a dead person that had been murdered in their home, according to authorities.
After speaking with witnesses, deputies said they determined Gabriel Faudoa, 34, was the suspect.
Deputies determined Faudoa fled the scene of the crime in a stolen vehicle, authorities said.
About an hour later, Faudoa was found and held by police, who took him in for questioning before booking him into jail, according to officials.
Faudoa was charged with first-degree homicide, robbery and aggravated motor vehicle theft, according to authorities.
The victim has not been identified pending an autopsy, authorities said.
Authorities said Faudoa was convicted in 2019 of second-degree assault involving strangulation.
He was sentenced to six years in prison on Jan. 30, 2019, but police said he was paroled in August 2020 after serving 20 months.
