Colorado Springs, Colorado — Thursday morning, a judge decides whether a proceeding against Leticia Stauf will be brought to trial.
Stauf has been accused of murdering his 11-year-old son-in-law, Ganon Stauf.
Ganon was reported missing in January 2020. At first, Stauf said her son-in-law went to a friend’s house and didn’t come back. Then, after a few weeks of searching in Colorado Springs, his body was found in Florida. According to investigators, Ganon was shot and stabbed many times.
A Stauf situation hearing is set up at 9 am with Judge Gregory Werner. Lauren Scharf of FOX21 will attend the hearing and provide the latest information via Twitter.
Judge Werner began the hearing by summarizing the outline of the law and the evidence presented at the preliminary hearing on 9 September. Stauf chose not to be present during the legal process.
Evidence included a body later identified as Ganon, later found in a suitcase under a blanket-wrapped bridge. A bullet was found on his skull. Investigators later discovered blood splatters in Ganon’s bedroom, causing them to believe that Ganon had been killed in his bedroom and moved to the garage.
In addition, investigators said Stauf rented a budget van and used a suitcase to move Ganon’s body from Colorado to Pensacola, Florida on February 1, 2020. On the morning of February 4, 2020, Stauf allegedly dropped a suitcase containing Ganon’s body from the Escanbia River Bridge, went to Orlando, and finally to South Carolina, where he was arrested.
Stauch appeared for hearing via WebEx. The prosecution and Ganon Stauf’s parents are in court.
