Marita Curry-Swanson, 35, has been charged with first-degree felony murder and first-degree burglary.

“Officers from the Denver Police Department responded to a report of several shots fired at the Sage and Sand Motel at 8415 East Colfax Avenue. They found the victim, Camille Harrell, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds,” Kimbrough said in a statement.

Harrell was later pronounced dead.

“The charges allege that Foote and Curry broke into the motel room of the victim’s sister, engaged in a confrontation with the victim and her sister, and that Foote shot and killed the victim,” Kimbrough said.

Both Foote and Curry-Swanson remain in custody. They are being held without bond and are scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday to be advised of the charges.
