    CO - Kiaya Campbell, 10, Thornton, 7 June 2017 *Arrest* #2

    10 year old girl reported missing from Thornton



    June 8, 2017

    Kiaya Campbell was walking from the 12400 block of Forest Drive with the 15-year-old son of her father’s girlfriend to a shopping center near East 136th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard about 7 p.m.

    The two became separated in the area of the 12900 block of Colorado Boulevard during a rainstorm.

    Police said they are concerned about a drainage ditch in the area that contains large bodies of water.

    The girl is described as 5-foot-4 and 150 pounds with brown/blonde hair and blue eyes.

    She was last seen wearing blue pants and an orange Broncos shirt, and was carrying a black backpack with gray and white camouflage.

    Posting again since thread closed.....

    In the last thread someone posted "2 counts murder after reluctance" ... I've never heard of that before. What does it mean?

    These are the counts I read:

    first-degree murder with intent and after deliberation ... and first-degree murder of a child under the age of 12 by a person in a position of trust.

    I took the first one to mean premeditated.

    I know squat about law but could there be two counts to get a longer sentence for him? For instance say he gets 40 years for each, can they then request they run consecutively rather than concurrent so he never gets out?

    No I don't know anything about the law either. Is it your opinion he should never get out of prison? I know many people feel that way. I just keep wondering if there's some way to salvage this kid.

    Some more information on the charges - I think they refer to 18-3-101 C.R.S., parts 2.5 and 3:

    Section 18-3-101 C.R.S. of the Colorado criminal code provides definitions for some of the terms in Colorado's first degree murder statute. 18-3-101 C.R.S. provides:

    As used in this part 1, unless the context otherwise requires:

    (1) “Homicide” means the killing of a person by another.

    (2) “Person”, when referring to the victim of a homicide, means a human being who had been born and was alive at the time of the homicidal act.

    (2.5) One in a “position of trust” includes, but is not limited to, any person who is a parent or acting in the place of a parent and charged with any of a parent's rights, duties, or responsibilities concerning a child, including a guardian or someone otherwise responsible for the general supervision of a child's welfare, or a person who is charged with any duty or responsibility for the health, education, welfare, or supervision of a child, including foster care, child care, family care, or institutional care, either independently or through another, no matter how brief, at the time of an unlawful act.

    (3) The term “after deliberation” means not only intentionally but also that the decision to commit the act has been made after the exercise of reflection and judgment concerning the act. An act committed after deliberation is never one which has been committed in a hasty or impulsive manner.

    An act committed after deliberation is never one which has been committed in a hasty or impulsive manner. However, the length of time required for deliberation is not long. All that is required for deliberation is enough time in which to form the intent to murder someone.2

    Yes. I feel he should never see the light of day. I wish I felt he was salvageable but it sounds like the violence with which she was killed makes him hopeless. IMO

    Agreed, sadly. He has thrown his life away.

    Neighbors say they saw the girl's body in the woods behind their homes, and they say it wasn't buried or covered. One neighbor said he thought he heard a scream from the area that night

    There was a very rugged ravine behind those houses and the area was really quite large.
