Woman Enters Not Guilty Plea in Wyoming Mutilation Case
GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — A 23-year-old woman accused of helping hide the dismembered bodies of two men has pleaded not guilty.
Kylee Collins is scheduled to stand trial in District Court beginning May 22 on a charge of accessory after the fact and two counts of conspiracy to mutilate a dead human body.
Michael Paul Montano has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of mutilation of dead human bodies in the deaths of his childhood friends — 38-year-old Jody Fortuna and 23-year-old and Phillip Brewer. The three grew up together in Sweetwater County.
Their dismembered bodies were found Oct. 8 in plastic totes in the back of Montano’s truck and at a storage rental unit.
Both Montano and Collins remain in jail.
