Trial set for woman in fatal stabbing

Amy Adamson

A trial has been set for November for a woman accused of stabbing a man to death and trying to hire a hit man to kill witnesses in the case.

Attorneys on both sides in the case of Amy Adamson were unable to reach a plea agreement Tuesday, so the case will head to trial. Attorneys requested three additional days for the trial, which is scheduled for Nov. 1–19.

Adamson has been charged with first-degree murder in the Jan. 15 stabbing death of 20-year-old Ramon Sandoval, who was found dead near Monument Ridge Townhomes, 2680 B 1/2 Road.

Authorities allege Adamson was angry with Sandoval, who had visited Adamson’s apartment the night before he was found dead, because she thought he had been flirting with her girlfriend.

Adamson in June was charged with two counts of solicitation to commit first-degree murder. She is accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill two witnesses in the case.

A January trial has been set in the case of a truck driver accused of causing a fatal crash June 29 on Interstate 70.

Tinauris Wise, 33, has been charged with a felony count of criminally negligent homicide and misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment and obstructing a highway. Police said Wise used cones to block part of the roadway, which caused a vehicle collision that killed 60-year-old Jose Aragon of Grand Junction.

A motions hearing in Wise’s case is scheduled for Nov. 1.
