Colorado inmate indicted in death of missing woman

In this undated booking photo provided by the Colorado Department of Corrections is Juan Jose Figueroa Jr., 32, who is currently serving time at the Buena Vista Correctional Facility in Buena Vista, Colo., for his conviction in a Longmont sex assault case in 2017. The first grand jury convened in Boulder, Colo., since the coronavirus pandemic began charged Figueroa on Friday, June 4, 2021, with murder and kidnapping in Rita Gutierrez-Garcia's death, relying in part on statements he allegedly made about the killing that were captured on a wiretap in the prison where he is serving a 93-year-to-life sentence.
