Three plead not guilty to gruesome murder

Victim Cymone Duran’s body was found burned in field near Golden

Posted

Abel Gallegos, 35, Alonso Quintana, 27, and Rene Rosales, 35, the three men accused of murdering 27-year-old Cymone Reyna Duran, pleaded not guilty at an arraignment hearing on May 31 before a Jefferson County judge.

At arraignment hearings, criminal defendants are formally advised of their charges and are asked to enter a plea. The shackled men entered the courtroom in orange jumpsuits. The family of Duran was in attendance.

Duran’s body was found in Golden on Nov. 5 last year. The 28-year-old was the mother of two, and she had been shot multiple times before being set ablaze.

Investigators said they believe her death was the result of someone who was seeking revenge. Duran was working with law enforcement as a witness to an attempted murder case in Adams County.

Gallegos and Rosales face charges of first-degree murder, tampering with a deceased human body, second-degree arson and tampering with evidence.

Quintana faces charges of first-degree murder, first-degree kidnapping, aggravated intimidation of a witness and possession of a weapon by a previous offender.
