Groves was first convicted of second-degree murder in 1982 for killing Tammy Sue Woodrum, 17, and was released in 1987 on mandatory parole. In 1990, Groves was sentenced to life in prison for the slaying of Juanita “Becky” Lovato, 19, and 20 years in prison for second-degree murder in the death of Diane Montoya Mancera, 25.


The victims were identified as Emma Jenefor, 25, Joyce Ramey, 23, and Peggy Cuff, 20, who were all killed in 1979. He was also linked to the death of Pamela Montgomery, 35, whose body was found in an alley in 1988.

Groves stalked the Colfax Avenue corridor, and different jobs also brought him to locations throughout the Denver area, Yearling said. Some of the women Groves targeted were prostitutes, but others were acquaintances, he said.

snip...When Groves was dying in 1996 in his early 40s, detectives asked him to share the fate of his victims, but he refused, Morrissey said.
