Adult Charges Against 2 Juveniles In Death Of 15-Year Old Cheyenne Girl


    Two Cheyenne juveniles have been charged as adults in the shooting death of a 15-year old girl in a Cheyenne city park. 

     17-year old Johnny Munoz and 16-year old Julian Espinoza were arrested Tuesday and made their first court appearances Wednesday.

      Both are charged with conspiracy to commit 1st-degree murder with Munoz also charged with 1st-degree murder and Espinoza with accessory before the fact of 1st-degree murder.

      Both are being held in the Laramie County Juvenile Services Center on $250,000 cash bond with preliminary hearings scheduled for next Thursday

     Cheyenne police spokeswoman Alex Farkas says local detectives working in partnership with the U-S Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force arrested the two teens for killing the 15-year old girl, whose name has not been released.

        Farkas says the investigation shows friends and family of the girl were playing basketball together at the park a little after midnight on Sunday, April 30, when multiple shots were fired from a passing SUV and she was hit. 

         Detectives believe Espinoza was driving the SUV with Munoz firing the shots from the front passenger’s seat.

  1. We need stricter Gun laws. At least a 10 day waiting period on ALL firearms. Better background checks and stricter rules on ammunition sales.

  2. This world isn’t safe anymore. Some of you parents need to do a better job raising your kids. I’m glad they’re being charged as adults. I fear for the future generations.

  3. adults should lock up their guns and kids should not have access unless parents with them. and parents should be held liable if under 18

  4. And you think these guns were legally obtained? More gun laws only impact law abiding people. Criminals don’t care what the law says. If they did, then surely they would pay attention to the “don’t kill people” ones.
