Second suspect arrested in Aristocrat Acres attempted murder investigation

Posted on 10/22/2020

Weld County Sheriff’s Office detectives have arrested a second suspect wanted in connection to a nonfatal shooting earlier this month at a home in a rural Weld County subdivision.

Teresa Jean Miller, 49, of Fort Lupton, was booked Wednesday into the Weld County Jail on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, accessory to a crime, two counts of possession of a weapon by a previous offender, committing a violent crime by use of a deadly weapon and tampering with physical evidence, all felonies. She also was booked on a felony probation revocation.

The charges against Miller stem from a shooting on Saturday Oct. 10 in front of a residence in the 7100 block of Henry Street in Aristocrat Acres, which is a subdivision located about four miles northeast of Fort Lupton. Coltin Clark, 28, also of Fort Lupton, was the first suspect arrested during the investigation.

Clark and Miller are in a romantic relationship, and Miller was at the home when the shooting occurred. Clark and Miller fled the scene together in a pickup.

Clark turned himself into the Weld County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday, Oct. 13, which was three days after the shooting. He was booked into the Weld County Jail on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, second-degree assault, menacing and possession of a weapon by a previous offender, all felonies, as well as a misdemeanor charge of violating a mandatory protection order.

Miller remains in jail without bond pending her first appearance this afternoon in Weld County Court. Clark remains in jail on $100,000 bond.

Information gathered during the investigation thus far suggests the shooting between Clark and a family member was related to a dispute over money. This remains an active investigation. No additional information can be released at this time.
