AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) — The District Attorney’s Office for the 18th Judicial District says a jury found an Aurora man guilty Wednesday of killing his ex-girlfriend.
After a trial that lasted five days, the district attorney’s office said Andrew Joseph Condon, 29, was found guilty of second-degree murder for killing LaBrea Jackson in December of 2018.
“This was a horrific act of domestic violence that robbed two children of their mother, parents of their daughter and a community of a beloved member,” Chief Deputy DA Andrew Steers said. “This verdict is the first step towards justice.”
He was also found guilty of the following charges:
- Tampering with a deceased body
- Motor vehicle theft
- Violent crime resulting in death
- Felony menacing
Jackson’s mother reported her missing from Aurora on Dec. 23 after she failed to show up to a family gathering.
The district attorney’s office said Jackson’s body was found inside a storage container at an abandoned truck stop on Interstate 25 in Las Animas County on Jan. 6, 2019.
Investigators found that Condon strangled Jackson sometime between Dec. 21, 2018 and Dec. 23, 2018, and then dumped her body inside a storage container at the truck stop.
Condon is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 10 at 1:30 p.m.
