Adams/Broomfield county District Attorney, Don Quick, announced the sentencing of Adrian Ray Quintana (dob: 9/23/87), Antonio Rios (dob: 4/12/90) and Lakiesha Vigil (dob: 9/02/89) in the death of a 16 year old boy from Thornton.

On February 15, 2010, Thornton Police responded to a physical disturbance involving weapons at 2021 Dichter Court in Thornton, CO. On scene, law enforcement located a 16-year old male who had been struck by an automobile and suffered multiple blows to in his head and torso from a baseball bat. He was transported to St. Anthony hospital where he was pronounced dead. Evidence presented at the trial of Rios showed that Vigil had hit the victim with her car knocking him to the ground. Rios and Quintana then beat him to death with a bat.

Quintana pled guilty to Second Degree Murder (F2) on November 5, 2010 and was sentenced by Adams Court District Judge F. Michael Goodbee to 30 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections on December 16, 2010. On June 3, 2011, Vigil also pled guilty to Second Degree Murder (F2). Judge Goodbee sentenced her on August 2, 2011 to 21 years in DOC. Rios was convicted by an Adams County jury on June 24, 2011 of Second Degree Murder (F2) and First Degree Assault (F3). Today, Judge Goodbee sentenced Rios to 30 years in DOC for each of the convictions, to be served concurrently. He also sentenced Rios to 10 years for two prior burglary charges where he was on probation and probation was revoked, to be served consecutive to the murder and assault sentences.
