    Update: We first reported about the arrest of William Amaya for the murder of his aunt and uncle in July 2014; our previous coverage has been incorporated into this post.

    It's appropriate that we tell you about the resolution of the case on Halloween. The crime itself was horrifying, and Amaya claimed a supernatural motivation; he is said to have believed that his relatives were possessed by the devil and to have bathed the bullets he used to kill them in holy water.

    These assertions, and the testimony of a psychiatrist who diagnosed him with schizophrenia, ultimately resulted in him being found not guilty by reason of insanity.

    For most of early 2014, the Eagle County Sheriff's Office said, Amaya rented a room from his aunt and uncle, Mayra Lorena Lopez, 40, and Eliseo Lopez, 42, in unincorporated Eagle County near the community of El Jebel.

    Then, at about 11:17 p.m. on Saturday, July 12, of that year, ECSO deputies were dispatched to the address in question: 160 Arapahoe.

    The crime scene.
    Eagle County Sheriff's Office
    The 911 call was placed by one of the Lopezes' sons. They were thirteen and fourteen, respectively, at the time of the crime. Neither was injured in the incident, with the caller fleeing the house and reportedly phoning from another location. But their parents suffered fatal gunshot wounds.
    The Aspen Daily News noted that Amaya fled the scene in a 2009 Honda. But it didn't take authorities long to track him down. By pinging his cell phone, which he'd kept in his possession, they were able to track him to his place of employment, Colorado Pool and Spa Scapes, a business not far from Glenwood Springs — and a handgun was found in his car........
