Jesus Carreno sentenced to six years in prison in death of Denver Post reporter Colleen O’Connor
Colleen O’Connor enjoyed a good book and a long walk outside. Family and friends savored deep conversations with her about politics, social issues and knitting.
Her killer, Jesus Carreno, also enjoyed reading, being outside, discussing big ideas and spending time with his family.
Their paths crossed on the evening of Aug. 31 when Carreno struck O’Connor with his car at the intersection of East First Avenue and Downing Street. O’Connor, a Denver Post reporter, was finishing her daily walk, and Carreno, who was drunk, was on his way home from a Rockies baseball game.
