Man pleads guilty to murder in Fort Collins crash that killed father, daughter
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A man has pleaded guilty to killing a father and daughter in a car crash.
The Coloradoan reported Wednesday that 20-year-old Marcos Orozco pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder Tuesday.
Authorities say 38-year-old Nicole Nees of Fort Collins and 55-year-old John Nees of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, died in the November 2018 crash in Fort Collins.
Orozco also pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary of a firearm, while six other charges were dismissed in plea agreement.
Authorities say Orozco used a stolen truck to break into a pawn shop to steal two AR-15 rifles and one AK-47 rifle on Thanksgiving.
Police say later that morning Orozco was driving the same vehicle in the multi-car crash that killed the Neeses.
He is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 23.AlertMe
