Grand Jury Indicts Man Called ‘Ms. Puppy’ For Double Murder
DENVER (CBS4) – A grand jury has returned a multiple count indictment against a man accused of murdering two men in 2011.
Daryl L. Rasmussen, 58, now faces two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 63-year-old Ronald Ford and 56-year-old Ramiro Sanchez in late January, 2011 in their home in the 100 block of Stuart Street.
He also faces a dozen other counts, including theft, identity theft and credit card fraud.
Rasmussen, who had an alias of “Ms. Puppy,” was a house keeper and caregiver for Ford and Sanchez. Prosecutors had previously charged Rasmussen in their deaths but a judge said there was not enough evidence for a trial. That’s when the case went to a grand jury and the new indictment was handed down.
The indictment also names four co-defendants accused of conspiracy for allegedly helping Rasmussen with Ford and Sanchez’s stolen car and other items.
Rasmussen is currently in custody in Texas for a parole violation. He will now face extradition to Colorado.
