WESTMINSTER, Colo. — A man has been charged following the beating death of his grandmother last month.
The 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday that John Power Swenson, 24, is charged with first-degree murder.
On Dec. 9, 2019, Westminster police officers responded to a welfare check at the East Bay Senior Housing complex at 3720 W. 68th Ave.
When officers arrived, they found 75-year-old Linda Shomberg in a pool of blood on the floor of a bedroom in her apartment.
She was pronounced dead at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Lafayette.
A few hours later, Swenson was arrested by Denver police on unrelated charges.
He appeared in Adams County District Court Tuesday morning. His next court date is scheduled for Feb. 18.
