Murder charge dropped in plea deal for woman
A woman originally charged with first-degree murder could instead be sentenced to anywhere from probation to prison after a guilty plea Wednesday in the killing of a man on Orchard Mesa.
Sadie Camis, 29, pleaded guilty to felony counts of identity theft and tampering with evidence in an agreement in which prosecutors dismissed a host of charges, including first-degree murder. She could be sentenced to a maximum 15 years in prison, probation or a sentence to Mesa County Community Corrections.
She is scheduled for sentencing July 29 before Chief Judge David Bottger.
Camis and her boyfriend, Nathan Dennis, 28, and Aaron Ungles, 28, were all charged with first-degree murder in the Oct. 21, 2012, death of 38-year-old Rigoberto Luna.
Luna was choked to death with a lug wrench in the front seat of his own Jeep and robbed of credit cards. His pants were stripped down and the Jeep was stolen.
Camis, Dennis and Ungles were with Luna during a night of partying before Luna’s body was discovered by a passerby dumped under a tree off 29 3/4 Road on the morning of Oct. 22, 2012. An autopsy showed he died of strangulation.
