COVID-19 could lead to mistrial for alleged killer of Derek Greer and Natalie Partida

Marco Garcia Bravo

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- A Fourth Judicial District judge suspended testimony in the 2017 case involving two teens who were killed execution-style near El Paso and Pueblo County line.

Marco Garcia-Bravo is the last of 10 defendants in an alleged gang related murder of 16-year-old Natalie Cano-Partida and 15-year-old Derek Greer. Garcia-Bravo is suspected of being one of two shooters who executed the teens along Old Pueblo Road at point-blank range after being kidnapped from a party in Colorado Springs.

On Monday, we're told the judge announced a juror had been tested for coronavirus and results were expected to be announced next week. If the juror tests positive, it could mean other jurors were potentially exposed to the virus and could lead to a mistrial.

A mistrial could potentially mean the case would move forward at a later date with a different set of jurors.
