Housekeeper pleads guilty to killing Denver couple

DENVER — A man has pleaded guilty to killing two Denver men who hired him as a housekeeper.

Fifty-eight-year-old Daryl L. Rasmussen pleaded guilty Friday to counts of second-degree murder. The Denver Post reports he was sentenced to 30 years in prison, and 13 other charges against him were dismissed.

Prosecutors say Rasmussen beat to death 63-year-old Ronald Ford and 56-year-old Ramiro Sanchez at their Denver home in 2011. They say Rasmussen also stole the couple’s car and used their credit cards and identities after their deaths.

The men’s bodies were found a week apart.

Rasmussen had been homeless when the men hired Rasmussen to be a housekeeper and caregiver to Sanchez, who was disabled, in 2010.
