Suspect In Murder Of Soldier, Pregnant Wife Now Faces New Charges

By  | 

A teenager behind bars for allegedly killing a Fort Carson soldier and his pregnant wife is now facing new charges.

The new charges stem from crimes Macyo January allegedly committed while locked up for the murders of Staff Sergeant David Dunlap and Whitney Butler. Both were shot to death as they entered their home during a burglary in progress in early 2013.

According to court documents, January, 19, is accused of biting a fellow inmate. According to a sheriff's deputy, January snuck out of his jail cell on April 6, then assaulted and bit another inmate. He also "shoved" another person within the jail on December 8, 2013.

January is currently awaiting trial for the double murder, and returned to court Tuesday. He waived his right to a speedy trial--something requested because DNA evidence in the case was taking longer than expected to be processed. January's trial will now be in August instead of this month.
