Man accused of killing escort in Grand Junction

GRAND JUNCTION - A 36-year-old man is accused of killing a male escort he met for sex on the website Craigslist.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports Billy Joe Delacey, a former resident of Fruita, was arrested Friday at his home in Lansdale, Pa. The arrest came a day after a judge signed off on a grand jury indictment alleging first-degree murder, second-degree murder, possession of sexually exploitative material and misdemeanor theft.

Delacey is accused in the beating death of 26-year-old Luis Alberto Vasquez Oliva, or "Beto."

Investigators say they were called the morning of Aug. 1, 2011, by Oliva's roommate, who found Oliva on a deflated air mattress with a large amount of blood pooled around his head.
