Cheyenne Man Charged With Murdering 80-Year-Old Mother
A 48-year-old Cheyenne man has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his 80-year-old mother.
James "Brian" Wallace was scheduled to make his initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court Thursday afternoon, but was uncooperative and won't be seen until May 23.
"There were three different events that happened to her," said Laramie County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Captain Linda Gesell. "We're waiting for the blood expert to determine what event took place first, and then we're waiting for the medical examiner report."
Wallace, who was arrested on an unrelated warrant, continues to be held in the Laramie County jail. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.
