DENVER — The Denver District Attorney’s Office filed two first-degree murder charges against a Denver man accused of killing two women last week in an apartment on South Parker Road.

The charges against Jose King are both felonies. He’s accused of killing Amanda Anders, 19, and Nancy Worrell, 22.

Testimony and a court affidavit revealed that King and one of the women were roommates and that the women were friends. King told police he could not remember what the argument was about that led to the shootings. King told police he used a .45-caliber handgun.

Deputies testified that King told investigators that after the shooting, he left wearing only brown sweatpants, but forgot his keys and walked back in to retrieve them, stepping over the bodies.

He drove to Castle Rock, where his parents live, and met his father. He then started “apologizing for something that he had done and saying he came to say goodbye.”

The parents contacted Castle Rock police for a welfare check and King told officers to arrest him before he was taken to Denver investigators.

Testimony also revealed that King told the Castle Rock officer who arrested him that he had “done a bad thing tonight.”
