$1-M Bond Set In Cheyenne Murder


    A judge in Cheyenne has set a bond of $1-million dollars cash for a Cheyenne man charged with a shooting early Saturday morning that left another Cheyenne man dead in a Cheyenne house. 

      23-year-old Antonio Navarrete is charged with 1st-degree murder and aggravated assault and battery with a deadly weapon in the death of 25-year-old Cortaevius Williams. 

     Navarrete made his first court appearance yesterday and had a preliminary hearing set for next Wednesday afternoon, April 3rd.

      Cheyenne spokeswoman Alex Farkas says the shooting was the culmination of an incident that began a little after midnight when Williams and Navarrete got into an argument in the parking lot of a local bar.

        Williams allegedly smashed the windshield on Navarrete’s vehicle, but the two men separated without further violence with Navarrete going home with a group of friends.

      Farkas says Williams went to Navarrete’s home a short time later  to collect personal belongings, but that another dispute broke out and Navarrete shot Williams with a pistol.

     Police were dispatched to the home about 12:30 and found Williams had been shot in the neck. He was taken by ambulance to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Navarrete was arrested about the same time.
