The suspect in the murder of 30-year-old Adolph Arellano, who was shot and killed Oct. 30 in Centennial, has been taken into custody.
Jacqueline Yvonne Lucero, 34, was being held on charges of first-degree murder. Other charges were pending, the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office said earlier this week.
Lucero was arrested after she was spotted driving in the area of Quebec Street and East 56th Avenue and led Denver police on a chase through Denver, unincorporated Arapahoe County and Aurora until the car she was driving crashed near Alameda Avenue and Potomac Street. She was taken into custody after a brief chase on foot.
The homicide of Arellano occurred in a parking lot in the 300 block of East Highline Circle.
Lucero and the victim were known to each other and investigators do not believe it was a random crime.
