AURORA, Colo. — An Aurora man has been charged with murder after allegedly stabbing a 20-year-old woman to death.

Marcos Gutierrez, 21, has been formally charged with first-degree murder after deliberation in connection to the death of Airica May Beaty on April 11.

That evening, Aurora police responded to a 911 call from the Amber Apartments, which is located along the 1940 block of N.

She was transported to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to the 17th Judicial District Attorney's Office.

A man was also found with stab wounds in the apartment, police said. His injuries were not life-threatening.

At the time, police said they believed the incident was isolated and that there wasn’t a threat to the community.

Gutierrez’s preliminary hearing is set for July 24.
