Man Found Guilty in Death of Girlfriend
Adams/Broomfield District Attorney Don Quick announced that Kevin Duane Stunes (dub: 4/10/70) was found guilty of first degree murder (F1) of his long time girlfriend, Nancy Bannock (dub: 4/16/56) last Thanksgiving holiday.
On November 29, 2008 at approximately 11:00 AM, Adams County Sheriff's Deputy Police responded to a domestic violence call at 1616 East 78th Ave. in Adams County Colorado. Law enforcement reported that while checking the house, the victim's body was found covered up on the bed. Witnesses reported that the Stunes and the victim had been arguing off and on since Thanksgiving. Death was caused by blunt trauma to the neck causing asphyxiation.
District Court Judge Chris Melonakos sentenced Stunes immediately to life in piston without the possibility of parole. He was remanded immediately to the Colorado Department of Corrections.
