DENVER (CBS4)– Two men have been formally charged in the killing of a 23-year-old man in Denver in 1996 after an investigation by the Cold Case Project.

Antonio Domena and Sheldon Long have been charged with first-degree murder and retaliation against a witness.

On Oct. 30, 1996, police in Denver responded to the 2700 block of Madison Street on a report of a shooting. They found the victim, Darryl Givens, lying in the street with gunshot wounds; he died at the scene.

As part of Denver’s Cold Case Project, Givens’ murder underwent review by a cold case detective. This review, which included re-interviewing witnesses, resulted in identifying Domena, 44, and Long, 41, as suspects in the murder.

Domena and Long, who were arrested late last week, remain in custody without bond, are scheduled to appear in Denver District Courtroom 5H on Friday at 8:30 a.m. to be formally advised of the charges.
