Arrest made in Jeffco homicide
Jefferson County, Co. -- On February 12, 2010, at about 12:00 p.m., the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office arrested Daryll Glenn Brown (dob 012365) for the murder of his ex-wife, Alisha Brown (dob 012179).
On December 30, 2009, Alisha was scheduled to meet a friend at her residence located at 14192 W. 4th Ave. When the friend received no answer at the door or on her cell phone, he became concerned. He looked into the windows of the home and saw a body inside. When deputies arrived, they forced entry into the home and found Alisha. It appeared she died of blunt force trauma.
Sheriff's investigators have worked tirelessly on this case, performing a complete and thorough investigation. The suspect was arrested without incident and booked into the Jefferson County Jail. His next court appearance is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 16, 2010. He's currently being held without bond for first degree murder and domestic violence.
