DENVER (CBS4) – Murder charges have been filed against the prime suspect in the murder of Kenia Monge.

A coroner confirmed Thursday afternoon that the body found near Keenesburg on Wednesday is that of Monge, the 19-year-old Aurora woman who disappeared April 1.

Friends reported Monge missing after she left the 24K Lounge in downtown Denver. She left her belongings behind.

The suspect, Travis Forbes, says he gave her a ride that night.

The Denver District Attorney’s office filed one charge of first degree murder against Forbes Thursday afternoon. An arrest affidavit in the case is being sealed.

Forbes is being held in Fort Collins on charges of sexual assault and attempted murder in a separate case. On Wednesday he took police to a field in Weld County where they found the buried body.

    Who else but the murderer or an accomplice know where the body would be found? Sounds like he may be working on a plea bargain to avoid the death penalty. That wouldn’t matter in Colorado anyway because he’d probably die of old age before the sentence was carried out!

    Its being reported on other news outlets that he has confessed.

    My condolences to the family. I am so sorry you have to endure this.

    RE: The station 92.3 Free FM it’s nickipg up from where WNEW left off with their crock talk a few years ago before becoming its current Fresh 102.7 and the calls changing to WWFS and WNEW-FM being sent to Palm Beach, FL.If you ask me, 92.3 Free, should be called FREEFALL FM. It has to be the WORST COMMERCIAL STATION ON THE AIR in NYC (Worst Non-Commercial goes to WBAI). Sometimes 92.3 airs a sporting event should WFAN run into a conflict.lonewackodotcom, if only people in the black community could listen more to people like Roy and Niger Innis or Jesse Lee Peterson instead of these racist shakedown artists. But Sharpton and Jackson have clout, money, and the corporate media in their pockets.
