FOUNTAIN, Colo. — On Wednesday, a Fountain man was found guilty of first-degree murder after deliberation for the death of his fiance.

Donnell Desmond Bradley was also found guilty of child abuse related to a child who was at the home when the murder was committed. Bradley was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

On August 8th, 2019, at approximately 10:55 a.m. the Fountain Police and Fire Department responded to a medical call on Patchwork Ct., in reference to an unconscious female not breathing.

When officers arrived they found 29-year-old Jeanette Ellingson dead inside the home, with significant injuries to her body.

The City of Fountain extends its deepest condolences to the Ellingson family.
