A Jefferson County jury returned guilty verdicts in the murder of 25-year-old Jesse Robinson. Keevin Bell, II, DOB: 1-26-85, was found guilty of three counts of First Degree Murder; two counts of Attempted Aggravated Robbery, two counts of First Degree Burglary, and two counts of Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft.
Codefendant Cortnee Eaglen pled guilty to Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder.
In June, 2017 Keevin Bell and his girlfriend Cortnee Eaglen drove to Jefferson County from Kansas City, KS in a stolen car, a Jeep. She was meeting with her probation officer in Jefferson County. They stole a second car in Wheat Ridge, a Mazda, and began trying to sell the Jeep.
Courtnee Eaglen knew Mr. Robinson and negotiated with him on social media and in person about buying the jeep. A friend of Mr. Robinson’s met with Bell and gave him $200 in counterfeit bills for the Jeep. The following day, because he realized the bills were counterfeit, Bell began looking for Mr. Robinson to get the money or the Jeep. He located Mr. Robinson at a motel in Lakewood. Bell went into the room and, following an argument, shot Mr. Robinson in the head. Mr. Robinson was pronounced dead at the scene.
Bell and Eaglen returned to Kansas where they were later arrested by Lakewood police detectives.
Bell testified at trial and said that one of the reasons they came to Colorado was for the marijuana.
Eaglen faces a prison sentence of 20 to 40 years when she is sentenced on March 15 at 1:00.
Bell will be sentenced on March 15 at 3:00. He will be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
