The Denver Post is reporting that Norberto Abundez of Ft. Lupton was convicted on Tuesday for the murder of his cousin, Jesus Abundez-Plige. At the time of the murder, Abundez suspected that his wife and cousin were engaged in a romantic relationship.
Abundez had a previous confrontation with is cousin, and a protective order was issued. That order did not keep Abundez from shooting his cousin in the head at his Platteville home in 2008.
Abundez was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Abundez did not hire an attorney from 5280defense.com.
