High bond  for suspect  in killing  in Collbran

Adam T. Boggie Judge Michael Grattan set Adam Boggie's bond at $250,000 in cash, and ordered him to stay away from the victim's husband and the trailer park, if he's able to post the bond.

A Collbran man accused of shooting his neighbor to death Saturday appeared Monday afternoon in Mesa County Court, where a judge set a high cash bond.

Adam T. Boggie, 36, is facing a potential second-degree murder charge in connection with the shooting death of his neighbor, 58-year-old Janice Brown, according to authorities.

Boggie was arrested Saturday night, about an hour after Mesa County sheriff's deputies received a report of shooting at a trailer park at 513 Glenarm Ave., east of downtown Collbran.

Deputies responding to trailer No. 5 found Brown already dead of shotgun-inflicted wounds to the head and neck.

Boggie, who lived in trailer No. 2, was pulled over about 50 miles away on Interstate 70, arrested and transported back to Mesa County.

Documents filed in connection with Brown's death remain under seal at the request of the Mesa County District Attorney's Office.

Boggie appeared before Mesa County Judge Michael Grattan Monday afternoon accompanied by public defender Angela Banducci. Banducci said she had made a written request to lift the seal on Boggie's arresting documents. Grattan said he would leave the decision up to Boggie's trial judge, District Judge Brian Flynn.

In a tearful plea, Brown's husband, 59-year-old Russell Hochman, asked Grattan "to not let this man get bond."

Grattan set Boggie's bond at $250,000 in cash, and ordered him to stay away from Brown's husband and the trailer park if he's able to post the bond.

Boggie is due to appear next on Tuesday before Flynn.
