(WSVN) - A Colorado man is behind bars accused of murdering a mother of four.
According to KOAA, 41-year-old Amy Garcia, was found shot to death inside of a burned car back on Dec. 20, in Walsenburg, Colorado.
A witness told police that Garcia had been arguing with the accused killer, Hieth Gleason, about alcohol prior to the shooting.
The witness went on to say that Gleason got a gun and said he was going to kill her, before walking outside of his home and firing a single shot. According to an arrest affidavit, Gleason then walked back inside, stating that he hadn’t killed Garcia.
However, the witness said Gleason went back outside with his 12-year-old and a .22 caliber firearm, where multiple shots were heard.
According to investigators, when Gleason walked back inside a second time, he told the witness his son had “just earned his man card.”
Police were able to track down the father and son outside of a McDonald’s in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Gleason is now being held in a county jail, while his son is at a youth detention center.
Both are facing first degree murder charges.
