Hearing moved in Kiowa teacher murder case


The preliminary hearing in the murder case against Dan Pesch, the man accused of killing Kiowa High School teacher Randy Wilson in 2010, has been moved from March 30 to April 12 at 2 p.m. at the Elbert County Courthouse in Kiowa, the 18th Judicial District said.

Pesch, 34, has been charged with first-degree murder in the case, as well as resisting arrest, attempting to escape and obstructing an officer. Pesch was arrested in Littleton in December 2017, more than 7 ½ years after Wilson was found dead.

Wilson, who was 52 at the time of his death, was found dead of asphyxiation at the intersection of County Line Road and Kiowa-Bennett Road on June 14, 2010.

Information in the case against Pesch, including typically public information like arrest affidavits and autopsy reports, were sealed the day of his arrest. The secrecy is to protect the integrity of the investigation, said 18th Judicial District spokeswoman Vikki Migoya.

Prosecutors will present some of the evidence against Pesch at the hearing.
