Bond Set at $250K in 19-Year-Old Cheyenne Man’s Murder Case
Bond was set at $250,000 cash Wednesday for a 19-year-old Cheyenne man accused of murdering his significant other.
According to Cheyenne Police Department spokeswoman Alex Farkas, officers were dispatched to a 911 hang-up call at a camper near the 4700 block of Cactus Way at about 12:19 a.m. on Thursday, June 15.
Officers arrived to find Karn's significant other, 19-year-old Cheyenne woman Phoenix Cerenil, unresponsive with apparent signs of strangulation.
According to a booking sheet, police determined that Karn had pushed Cerenil causing her to strike her head on a table near the bed and lose consciousness.
Karn was arrested and charged Friday with aggravated assault, strangulation of a household member, and domestic battery, but the Laramie County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday afternoon amended those charges to include first-degree murder.
Karn's preliminary hearing is scheduled for this Friday, June 23, at 10:30 a.m.
