Court Roundup: Glenwood Murder Suspect In Court Tuesday, Vehicular Homicide Case Continued

A January motions hearing has been scheduled for two hours in the first-degree murder case against Trevor Torreyson of Glenwood Springs.

Torreyson, 43, remains in custody accused of first-degree murder in the death of Keith Richard Wayne, 56, of Glenwood Springs in late June. Torreyson appeared in Garfield District Court Tuesday morning.

Ninth District Chief Judge James Boyd ordered an off-docket, two-hour hearing to begin at 9 a.m. Jan. 17, 2019, to allow the defense and prosecution time to file and respond to motions being made in the case.

On June 20 between 8 and 9 a.m. police responded to a report of a man lying in a pool of blood outside of an office building located across Storm King Road from the Glenwood Springs Mall. The man, later identified as Wayne, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Torreyson was arrested that night after a Glenwood Springs police officer recognized an article of clothing near the victim’s body in a photo shared with officers during the evening shift change.

“He stated numerous times that he does not know how Wayne’s blood got on him,” according to court documents. “Torreyson repeated several times that he and Wayne were talking and that Wayne put his head on the table and fell asleep,” and that he left the area at that point.

Torreyson remains in the Garfield County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Glenwood vehicular homicide continued

Meanwhile, Judge Boyd also continued the case of Julie Broze, 50, who is accused of drinking and driving before a late-night crash June 2 that killed a 54-year-old bicycle rider in south Glenwood Springs. Broze is charged with DUI and vehicular homicide.

According to court documents, just before midnight on June 2, Broze was traveling north through the 27th Street intersection of South Glen Avenue (Highway 82) when her vehicle struck and killed Scott William Adams of Glenwood Springs.

Dashboard camera footage from a passing motorist headed in the other direction appeared to confirm that the bicyclist crossed the intersection heading east against the traffic light. Broze remains free on bond.
