Mile High Murder, No. 25: Jaime Moore charged with killing Jimmy Harmon

Playing some catch-up on violence that took place over the past couple of weeks....

A July 20 blog noted that a murder had taken place 3602 Leyden Street -- but it didn't note the name of the victim or the identity of the individual accused of the crime. The dead man was Jimmy Harmon, 57, whose body was found near 52nd and Forrest Street in Commerce City. Jaime Ledon Moore, 30, has been charged with the slaying.
