Jeffrey Scott Beier has been indicted for the murder of Charlene Voight, the Office of the District Attorney, 18th Judicial District announced Monday. The Arapahoe County Grand Jury issued its indictment August 9, 2019. The indictment is being released now because Beier, 46, was recently taken into custody in Russia.
Charlene Voight's body has not been found.
Beier has been charged: One count of first-degree murder after deliberation; One count of first-degree felony murder; One count of sexual assault; Two counts of attempt to influence a public servant; Two counts of tampering with evidence; One count of aggravated animal cruelty; One count of third-degree assault.
"I certainly can't tell you what was found, or the facts that led us to believe we needed to search the apartment," said Littleton Police Commander Trent Cooper. "It was just the facts and circumstances in this case are unique enough where we feel concerned and it's just part of the investigation."
Documents just obtained by Crime Watch Daily show an ugly and volatile history between Voight and her longtime boyfriend, entrepreneur Jeffrey Beier.
In a 2012 Voight filed for a restraining order against Beier, stating in court papers: "I'm scared for my life."
Voight describes an incident where "Jeff grabbed, slapped, choked and dragged me around the house for over 20 minutes ... I thought I was going to die."
And in a document filed after Voight's disappearance, her father asks the court for protection from Beier, stating: "We are afraid for our lives. We believe he may want to do us harm."
Recently Beier was questioned in connection with the sexual assault of another woman -- and that woman reportedly was the last person to see Charlene Voight alive.
But police say at this point there are no official persons of interest or suspects in the disappearance of Charlene Voight.
