    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    Investigators in Mesa County are searching for a parole escapee with a long criminal record for questioning in the disappearance and death of his mother, court papers and public safety records show. Daniel Stetzel, 31, is considered a person of interest in connection with the death of his mother, Kathleen Stetzel...

    Daniel Stetzel, whose criminal record dates back to the summer of 2002, has been arrested 17 times in Colorado on charges including assault, possession of methamphetamine, robbery, and resisting arrest... Habitual offender charges against Daniel Stetzel in 2009 were dismissed by the district attorney's office, the records say.

    An active felony escapee warrant against Daniel Stetzel — who had also violated parole in 2008 — issued on June 26 out of the Adams County court, remains outstanding, according to court documents. A spokeswoman for the Department of Corrections said Daniel Stetzel walked away from a drug and alcohol counseling-based halfway house.

    She looked such a sweet fun loving woman. Her son has not been charged with her murder as yet. How horrible if he did do it. Drugs take over your life, your conscience, your sense of right and wrong. Then you go to gaol where there are no drugs. So what was it all for? JMO

    Court documents show 31-year-old Stetzel admitted to investigators that he stabbed his mother with a screwdriver twice during a fight. He then allegedly wrapped a bed sheet around her neck...

    Also according to the documents, Stetzel told police the fight started when his mother yelled at him for taking a cigarette off a table. He claims the pair have been at odds since 2008 when he was sent to live in his mother's home after being paroled.

    Documents obtained by the CALL Investigators show the Department of Corrections did not search for an escaped felon, who is now back in custody after allegedly killing his mother.

    Daniel Stetzel, a 5-time convicted felon, was an escapee from a halfway house for nearly one month before he was re-arrested.

    Last month, a judge found Daniel Stetzel competent to stand trial.

    Suspect in slaying of mother fit for trial - September 8, 2015

    http://www.gjsentinel.com/news/artic...-fit-for-trial

    A Grand Junction man accused of killing his mother last summer at her home and dumping her body in the desert off 25 Road has been found competent to proceed in his Mesa County criminal case.

    Chief Mesa County Judge David Bottger on Thursday found in a ruling that 32-year-old Daniel Stetzel has been restored to competency after an evaluation and lengthy stay at the Colorado Mental Health Institute in Pueblo. Bottger last November ordered Stetzel admitted at the hospital after a state psychologist concluded Stetzel wasn’t fit to proceed.
    However, last week, Daniel pleaded guilty to the charges of second-degree murder thereby eliminating the need for a trial. He will be sentenced on November 30th.

    Man guilty in slaying of mother - October 6, 2015

    http://www.gjsentinel.com/news/artic...ying-of-mother

    A Grand Junction man on Tuesday told a judge he hears strange voices “not as much” as he once did, then admitted he killed his mother in a rage over a cigarette.

    Daniel Stetzel, 32, could be sentenced to anywhere from 16 to 48 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in the death of 54-year-old Kathleen Stetzel, whose body was dumped in the desert off 25 Road before it was found by family members on July 24, 2014, two days after she was reported missing.
