Woman pleads guilty to kidnapping charges linked to teen double-slaying
Alexandra Romero is agreeing to testify against other defendants in the double-slaying of two El Paso County teenagers.
Romero pleaded guilty to second-degree kidnapping on Monday tied to the deaths of 15-year-old Derek Greer and 16-year-old Natalie Cano-Partida. Prado faces more than 32 years in prison after the bodies of the two Coronado High School students were found on the side of Old Pueblo Road in Fountain.
Romero is one of 10 people who were charged in the case.
One of the defendants in the slaying of two teenagers has pleaded guilty to kidnapping charges.
"I did kidnap," Angelita Prado said in court Monday as she accepted a plea deal.
The deal will see her spend four years behind bars for her role in the deaths of 15-year-old Derek Greer and 16-year-old Natalie Partida,
in March. Prado also plead guilty to charges of felony eluding and intent to sell drugs. She acknowledged in court she led police on a chase when they went to arrest her and had meth on her, which she was planning to sell.
After serving four years in prison, Prado will be on parole for three years.
Five more suspects in the deaths were in court Monday afternoon. Gustavo Marquez, Diego Chacon, Joseph Rodriguez and Mario Garcia-Bravo are all facing first-degree murder charges, and Alexandra Romero is facing second-degree kidnapping charges.
The judge in the case announced the El Paso County Clerk must release court documents to the public with more details on the double murder, but not for 72 hours.
