Cimmeron Johns double-murder/suicide: Details of abuse, SWAT team raid, tragedy

The tragic Weld County deaths of Alisha Johns and her mom, Sheri Pachello, as well as the suicide of Cimmeron Johns, Alisha's husband and the women's presumed killer, may have taken place late last week, but the story may not be over.

A friend of Cimmeron could conceivably face charges, since she says he told her about killings but didn't immediately inform police.
