    I'm wondering "what happened" to the murder case? The # is C152016M163. From another case - someone could look up the case # in a different section of the Colorado court site, but not sure "where" that would be.

    And thanks for the updated court date. This is the fraud case.

    Re: Case C152016M163
    ^^ I don't find this case. Seventh Judicial District » Docket Search
    It seems C152016M163 is a 2016 case, whereas the murder case would be a 2018 case.
    There is only one case that populates for MACIAS-MORENO, EDGAR which is Case D152018CR189.

    Judge rejects suppression motion in murder case

    Edgar Macias-Moreno was not “in custody” at the time he reportedly confessed to the strangulation death of Madelaine Loh and his statements therefore will not be suppressed, a recent court ruling said.
    [.....]
    On June 5, Macias-Moreno’s defense attorney argued the statements he made should be suppressed, because he was functionally in custody from the moment Archibeque began speaking to him — his interview took place in a secure area and although prior to his arrest he was told he was free to leave, Macias-Moreno did not think that he was, attorney Shandea Sergent argued.
    [.....]
    In a July 9 order, District Judge Steven Schultz rejected most of the defense’s argument.

    Archibeque was clearly interrogating Macias-Moreno about Loh’s disappearance, but the circumstances surrounding the interview “suggest the defendant was not in custody when he made his confession in this case,” Schultz said.

    I checked Docket Search and I don't find MACIAS-MORENO, EDGAR.
    Seventh Judicial District » Docket Search
    It seems as if the Docket Search is limited and only populates if there is a scheduled hearing.

    More extensive court records are available at this CoCourts.com link, but for a fee:

    I looked for an updated news article, but came up with nothing.
    There is this Sheriff's Office update dated 3 weeks ago 7/24/19 which mentions the "August 12th plea hearing":

    Delta County Sheriff's Office

    Delta County Sheriff's Office
    July 24 at 2:59 PM ·
    UPDATE on the 2018 Madelaine Loh Homicide Case
    Delta County District Court Judge Schultz ruled on July 9th that Edgar Macias-Moreno was NOT "in-custody" when he confessed to killing his girlfriend, 27-year old Madelaine Loh, last June in Hotchkiss and taking her body to Utah. Judge Schultz issued his ruling after Macias-Moreno's defense attorneys moved to suppress his statements in a June 5, 2019 suppression hearing. The case now proceeds to an August 12th plea hearing in District Court.

    Guilty plea in Hotchkiss murder
    Sep 12, 2019
    Edgar Macias-Moreno on Thursday pleaded guilty to second-degree murder as an act of domestic violence in the 2018 strangulation death of Madelaine Loh.

    His plea agreement calls for between 25 and 40 years in prison. The felony-2 offense is classed as a crime of violence. Sentencing has been set for Nov. 15.

    Macias-Moreno was initially charged with first-degree murder and animal cruelty; these charges were dismissed under the plea deal.

    ‘Guilty’: Man pleads in Hotchkiss murder
    September 13, 2019
    Edgar Macias-Moreno will spend between 25 and 40 years in prison for strangling Madelaine Loh last year in Hotchkiss.

    Macias-Moreno, 25, responded with the word “Guilty” Thursday, when Delta District Judge Steve Schultz asked how he pleaded to an added count of second-degree murder, as an act of domestic violence, in the 2018 crime. Charges of first-degree murder, animal cruelty and concealing a death were dismissed under the agreement.

    “Do you admit you committed this violent act?” Schultz also asked.

    As he said in response to other questions, Macias-Moreno replied, “Yes, your honor.”

    hmmm... just looking at my notes & what the article said his original charges were. I have:

    charged (6/27/18) with 1st degree murder after deliberation, 2nd degree kidnapping, reckless endangerment, abused of corpse, aggravated car theft, illegal use of credit cards, fraud, concealing death, morals decency & cruelty to animal.

    Some of these i.e. 2nd degree kidnapping - are not mentioned.

    7/1/19 Update: Next status conference hearing for murder & fraud is 7/15. 7/15/19: District Judge Steven Schultz rejected most of the defense’s motion to suppress original interview with LE. Archibeque was clearly interrogating Macias-Moreno about Loh’s disappearance, but the circumstances surrounding the interview “suggest the defendant was not in custody when he made his confession in this case,” Schultz said. Next plea hearing on 8/12. 8/12/19: Plea hearing moved to 9/12.
    9/12/19 Update: Plead guilty to 2nd degree murder as an act of domestic violence in the 2018 strangulation death of Madelaine. His plea agreement calls for between 25 & 40 years in prison. The felony-2 offense is classed as a crime of violence. Sentencing has been set for Nov. 15. Macias-Moreno was initially charged with 1st degree murder & animal cruelty; these charges were dismissed under the plea deal. 2nd degree murder is a class-2 felony that carries a sentence between 8 & 24 years, but because Macias-Moreno plead guilty to an offense that is categorized as a crime of violence, the sentencing range became 16 to 48 years. He stipulated to a sentence of at least 25 years, but not more than 40 as part of his plea.
