GARFIELD COUNTY, Colo. – Authorities have identified the suspect arrested in the “extreme domestic violence” case that left a Glenwood Springs woman dead last Friday.

Gustavo Olivo-Tellez, 27, faces first-degree murder charges in the shooting death of 28-year-old Blanca Judith Jurado Salas. He also faces a prior domestic violence charge, as well as third-degree assault and obstruction of telephone services charges.

The Garfield County Coroner identified Salas as the victim Tuesday. Previous reports said the victim was 24 years old.

Grand Junction SWAT team members arrested Olivo-Tellez early Saturday after finding Salas dead at a Glenwood Springs apartment the night before.

The coroner’s office says Salas was shot several time.
