The Mesa County Sheriff's Office has arrested three suspects in connection to a homicide in Orchard Mesa.
The body of Rigoberto Luna was found on October 22, in a wooded area near B 1/2 Road and 29 3/4 Road. The Mesa County Coroner determined the cause of death was from strangulation.
On Saturday, October 27, Nathan Dennis, Sadie Camis and Aaron Ungles were arrested in connection to Luna's death.
According to police, Dennis and Camis were booked into the Mesa County Detention Center around 2:45 a.m. They were arrested without incident at 2907 3/4 Sandra Avenue in Grand Junction.
Dennis and Camis, both 28-years-old, are facing charges of first degree murder. Dennis is also being charged with aggravated robbery.
According to the arrest affidavit, police caught up with the pair after they used Luna's bank card at the Orchard Mesa Market at 176 29 Road.
The surveillance images taken at the store gave police a description of the suspects and the vehicle they were driving, a white Chevrolet pickup with wooden sideboards.
They were pulled over on North Avenue on Wednesday, October 24.
The arrest affidavit states that more transactions were referenced using Luna's account information, and more surveillance photos of the suspects came to light.
According to the affidavit, Luna and Camis knew each other. On the night he was murdered, he picked the suspects up in his car to take them to a liquor store.
While they were parked at the C&F store in Clifton, Dennis strangled Luna with a lug wrench, as stated in the arrest affidavit.
When police asked why Dennis killed Luna, one witness said she believed Dennis became upset with Luna for making sexual advances toward Camis. Dennis and Camis were living together.
Aaron Ungles, 26, was questioned by police and said Dennis was planning on robbing Luna, but he also thought Dennis may have been angry with Luna for flirting with Sadie.
Ungles was seen in surveillance photos using the stolen bank card as well. He's being charged with identity theft and one count of theft. He was taken to jail around 1:15 a.m. Saturday.
