Suspect charged in strangling death of Fort Collins woman

January 19, 2018

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a suspect in the sexual assault and strangling death of a Fort Collins woman who went missing in December.

The Coloradoan reports that 30-year-old Khalid White was charged Thursday with eight felonies, including first-degree murder after deliberation, in connection to the death of 41-year-old Kimberlee Graves.

Graves was last seen at her home Dec. 4. A park ranger found her body last week in Lory State Park.

Police said White was acquainted with Graves so they pursued him for information about her disappearance. White later missed a probation appointment and detectives learned he left Colorado on a commercial bus. Authorities say he was found and arrested in Nevada while in possession of Graves’ identification card.

Booking documents do not indicate if White has hired an attorney.
