Man pleads guilty to 2010 Weld County stabbing death
WELD COUNTY, Colo. — A 27-year-old Colorado man has pleaded guilty to stabbing and killing another man in 2010.
Weld County prosecutors say Roque Colin-Tapia pleaded guilty Tuesday to second-degree murder in the heat of passion in the death of 20-year-old Casey Korgan, of Evans, following a house party on Oct. 16, 2010.
Colin-Tapia will be sentenced June 4 in Weld County District Court and faces up to 18 years in prison.
Authorities say Colin-Tapia avoided prosecution for nearly eight years but was caught and extradited from Mexico last August.AlertMe
