An El Paso County jury in Colorado found Letecia Stauch guilty Monday of murdering her 11-year-old stepson, Gannon Stauch, in 2020.
The jury took around seven hours and 30 minutes and returned the verdict Monday afternoon, after failing to reach a decision last week. Stauch was also found guilty of tampering with a human body and tampering with physical evidence.
Following the verdict, 4th Judicial District Judge Gregory Warner announced that he would hand down sentencing today, after having an opportunity to speak with jurors privately.
Stauch pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity but prosecutors detailed her actions throughout the 3-week trial, with evidence that she stabbed, shot, and beat Gannon inside the family’s El Paso County home on January 27, 2020, then took great measures to cover her crime.
Months later, his body was found stuffed into a suitcase beneath a bridge in Pace, Florida.
