Las Vegan Chriselda Lopez says she was the only witness to her friend’s death in Colorado last week, other than her boy-friend, who has been charged.
At first, Joseph Daniel Mascarenas, 18, of Las Vegas was charged with second-degree murder in the death of his sister, 16-year-old runaway, Destiney Monique Mondragon.
But authorities in Adams County, which is part of suburban Denver, downgraded the charge to second-degree assault. The Adams County Sheriff’s Office wouldn’t provide an immediate explanation for that decision.
