Chicago developer indicted in alleged murder plot
DENVER — A federal grand jury in Denver has indicted a 72-year-old Chicago real estate developer accused of trying to hire a hit man for $2,000 to kill a business associate.
Brooks Kellogg, a part-time Steamboat Springs resident, was indicted late Wednesday on two counts in the alleged scheme. He is accused of traveling to Denver last month to arrange the murder of Stephen Bunyard of Destin, Fla., who won a $2.5 million judgment against Kellogg.
Kellogg could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted. He’s due in court Friday for his arraignment.
Kellogg’s attorney, Larry Pozner, questioned an FBI agent during a hearing Monday about a recorded conversation in which Kellogg allegedly set up the deal. The agent says the recording didn’t work.
