A Colorado man admitted he killed a man who he was living with in a vehicle by running him over.

On June 12, Alan Moody, 22, pleaded guilty to a second-degree murder charge in connection with the death of 21-year-old Zachary Taggart, the Daily Camera reported.

Following the plea, which came on the heels of a trial resulting in a hung jury over the second-degree murder charge, a judge revoked the defendant’s bond.

On April 1, 2022, police in Boulder responded to the report of a dead person in the parking lot of the Harvest Hope Food Pantry shortly before 6 a.m. At the scene, officers found Taggart.

An investigation determined Taggart had been living with the defendant in a Saturn sedan in the weeks before the incident.


The damaged sedan was later located about a block from the crime scene.

Investigators recovered security camera footage, which showed the sedan around 10:35 p.m. on March 31 hitting an object, causing the vehicle’s tires to rise and fall and sparks to fly.

Last month, Moody was convicted of multiple counts in the case, including vehicular homicide, leaving the scene and providing a false name to law enforcement.

He faces up to 22 years behind bars when he is sentenced on July 31 and is being held in the Boulder County jail, prosecutors said.
