A Jefferson County jury found Eric Carl Pospisil, DOB: 6-20-78, guilty of attempted murder of his girlfriend in Westminster in April, 2018. Following four days of trial, they returned guilty verdicts on Attempted Second Degree Murder (F3); First Degree Assault (F3); Aggravated Motor Theft (F5); Tampering with Evidence (F6); Possession of a Weapon by a Previous Offender (F6) and two violent crime counts (sentence enhancers). The verdict was returned on January 17, 2019.

Westminster police were called to the parking lot of the Westin Hotel at 10600 Westminster Blvd. on April 1, 2018 just after midnight. They found 35-year-old Amanda Pittock lying in the parking lot, having suffered a gunshot wound to the head. The jury heard testimony that Mr. Pospisil and Ms. Pittock, who were boyfriend and girlfriend, had been arguing in the parking lot about money earlier in the evening.

Four hours later, Westminster police were notified that a stolen car had been set on fire in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The car had been reported stolen out of Lakewood two weeks prior. It fit the description of the car police believed Pospisil to have been driving. A witness in the parking lot at the time of the shooting had seen Mr. Pospisil and had videotaped him leaving the parking lot.

Eric Pospisil was arrested four days later, on April 5. He had warrants outstanding at the time.

Ms. Pittock suffered severe brain injuries and will be impacted by those injuries for the rest of her life.

Sentencing has been set for February 15 at 2:00.
