TWO CHARGED WITH MURDER AFTER CHILDREN’S REMAINS FOUND

Law enforcement says two adults in Colorado are charged with the deaths of two children after police found the remains of one child in a metal container filled with concrete. Officers say a further investigation led to the discovery of the remains of another.

The report states that 35-year-old Jesus Dominguez and 36-year-old Corena Rose Minjarez were named as persons of interest when a child’s remains were located in a metal container at a storage unit in Pueblo in late January.

At that time, law enforcement was searching for two children last seen in the summer of 2018: Yesenia and Jesus Jr. Dominguez.

During the investigation, law enforcement located a vehicle belonging to Minjarez at a scrap yard in Pueblo. Police executed a search warrant and located a suitcase in the trunk containing the remains of Yesenia Dominguez. Officers say other remains found in a container were identified as Jesus Dominguez Jr.

Minjarez and Dominguez face charges including murder and abuse of a corpse. They are each being held on a $2 million bond.
