Vicente Enrique Orozco appeared in a Jefferson County court on Aug. 28 where he was formally charged with 17 counts, including two counts of first-degree murder relating to two stabbings that took place in Belmar, according to a release from the First Judicial District, which covers Jefferson and Gilpin counties.
In the early morning of Aug. 15, Lakewood Police were called to Belmar Park at 801 S. Wadsworth Blvd. where they found 19-year-old Ivan Rivera with multiple stab wounds. He died a few days later at a hospital.
Later that morning, Lakewood Police were called back to the park where they found 61-year-old Stevan Sandvick dead and with multiple stab wounds.
Orozco, 19, was arrested by Lakewood Police on Aug. 21, and charged on suspicion of killing Sandvick.
He now faces two counts of aggravated robbery, 11 violent crime counts, one count of attempted first-degree murder, one count of first-degree felony murder and two counts of first-degree murder after deliberation after being named the suspect in Rivera's death as well.
He is being held without bound at the Jefferson County jail and is due back in court for a preliminary hearing on Sept. 27.
The arrest affidavit regarding Orozco is currently sealed by authorities.
