DENVER (CBS4)– Police in Denver have released the mug shot of a murder suspect arrested in connection with the shooting death of an elementary school teacher. Officers also have made another arrest in the case.

Ryan Miller was arrested Dec. 16, just hours after police said he shot and killed Andrea Roan while she was driving to work. Roan was shot in the head at 7:24 a.m. near 12th and Clayton.

After she was shot, Roan’s car crashed into a garage. She had recently ended a brief relationship with Miller, and a judge had ordered Miller not to contact her.

Miller, 27, was arrested earlier this month for domestic violence involving Roan. He has been charged in her shooting death.

Police also arrested Richard James Leavitt in connection with Roan’s murder. Leavitt, 27, has been charged with accessory to first degree murder.

Police believe Leavitt drove Miller to and from the crime scene and helped hide the murder weapon. Leavitt has been released from custody on a $50,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 30 for an advisement hearing.

Roan was a fifth grade teacher at Alsup Elementary School in Commerce City.
