The man’s body was found on Dec. 4 in an alley in the 1300 block between Xenia and Xanthia streets.

“They found the victim in the alley and later located a crime scene in an apartment nearby,” Kimbrough said in a statement.

Kimbrough said the new murder charges are a result of the autopsy report and additional forensic results from the Denver Crime Lab.

The two men remain in custody. Their next court date has not yet been set.
