A Fruita man took aim at his wife’s face with a 16-gauge shotgun, at a distance of three feet or less, before turning the weapon on himself in a spiral fueled by alcohol and a fight over money erupting on a Sunday in January, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
His face partially covered by a surgical mask, wearing gloves, a hospital gown and appearing frail when required to walk during a bond hearing broadcast via video feed from the Mesa County Jail, 47-year-old Steven Scott Spiess on Tuesday was ordered held in lieu of $1 million cash on a Fruita Police Department warrant with counts of first-degree murder and misdemeanor prohibited use of a weapon.
Under a proposed body-camera grant program approved by a House committee Tuesday, police officers can use body cameras to exonerate themselves when someone claims they’ve done something wrong.
