MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO EAST DENVER SHOOTING
A man accused in the shooting death of another man last November has pleaded guilty to murder.
Corey Davis (dob: 03-03-1987) pleaded guilty last Friday in Denver District Court to second degree murder (F2). He was originally charged with first degree murder (F1).
On November 6, 2017, following a verbal exchange, Davis shot 42-year-old Christopher Moody in the chest as Mr. Moody sat in his car in the 2100 block of N. Olive Street. The victim managed to drive off after being shot but crashed about a block away into an unoccupied parked car, where Denver firefighters responding to a report of a car accident found him. Moody was transported to Denver Health Medical Center, but died of his gunshot wound.
A sentencing hearing is scheduled for September 27, 2018.
