Hereford, Texas - It's a Colorado cold case from over two decades ago re-opened in Hereford. The man with a warrant out for murder is now behind bars in the Deaf Smith County Jail.
Jesus Carnero, was arrested at a home in Hereford when police responded to domestic assault complaints this weekend. Police booked Carnero into the county jail Sunday afternoon, on charges of terroristic threats and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
It was these charges that led police to making a much bigger discovery. Carnero, who has gone by several other aliases, is wanted for first-degree murder in Denver, dating back to 1988. Corporal Kirsten Williams of the Hereford Police Department says, "We then spoke with the Denver Police Department...their ID area and we sent a copy of those prints to them. They were able to relatively quickly make a positive identification that the subject we had in custody we thought was their murder suspect, was indeed their murder suspect."
