DENVER — A man accused in the murder of a woman last summer at a Denver motel has been found guilty by a jury after a seven-day trial, the Denver District Attorney’s Office said Friday.
Brandon Foote, 30, was found guilty of first-degree murder after deliberation, first-degree felony murder and first-degree burglary. The jury deliberated one day before returning the verdicts.
On June 25, officers from the Denver Police Department responded to a report of several shots fired at the Sage and Sand Motel at 8415 E. Colfax Ave.
They found the victim, a 30-year-old woman, a block away, suffering from fatal gunshot wounds.
Foote was accused of breaking into a motel room where the victim’s sister was staying and killing the victim, after an altercation.
Foote will be sentenced on June 3.
A co-defendant, Merita Curry-Swanson, 36, is charged with first-degree felony murder and first-degree burglary in connection with the case and is scheduled to go to trial in June.
