Two Men Sentenced to Life in Prison for Death of Littleton Man

Jordan Lemarinel

Jordan Taggert Lemarinel, DOB: 4-17-90, appeared in Jefferson County District Court today where he was sentenced to life in prison, plus 12 years, for the murder of 26-year-old Addison Stewart in May, 2017. Codefendant Kenneth Upton Crise, DOB: 10-15-61, was sentenced to prison for life, plus 48 years in March, 2018. Crise had nine prior felony convictions and was sentenced as a habitual criminal.

Both Lemarinel and Crise were convicted by juries of numerous counts including First Degree Murder, Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder, Aggravated Robbery, and Tampering with a Deceased Body.

On May 1, 2017 the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office was called on a report of a suspicious vehicle in front of a house at 11347 Maplewood Court, in unincorporated Jefferson County. Mr. Stewart was dead inside the car. He had been shot twice.

Earlier the same day, Mr. Stewart had been lured to 6232 S. Owens Court under the guise of a drug sale. It was a set-up. Mr. Stewart thought he was purchasingKenneth Crise illegal prescription drugs when he arrived at the house. There was evidence presented during trial that, unbeknownst to Mr. Stewart, this meeting was to settle debts between the men. Crise and Lemarinel were in the garage of the house when Mr. Stewart arrived. Stewart went into the garage and the garage door was closed behind him. Three minutes later, the garage door opened and Mr. Stewart’s body was dragged out and loaded into his vehicle. Mr. Lemarinel then got into Mr. Stewart’s car and drove the vehicle to the address on Maplewood where he left it. He returned to the S. Owens Court address, on foot, a short time later.  Mr. Stewart’s vehicle, with his dead body inside, was found later that day.
