Third guilty plea in slaying

Sadie Camis

A woman facing two counts of murder will be sentenced to anything from probation to prison after guilty pleas 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 after deliberation and felony murder. She could be sentenced to a maximum 15 years in prison, probation or Mesa County Community Corrections.

She’s 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 the morning of Oct. 22, 2012, by a passerby dumped under a tree off 29 3/4 Road. An autopsy showed he died of strangulation.

Dennis and Ungles face maximum possible prison sentences of 40 and 28 years, respectively, after pleading guilty earlier this month.
