Meagan Stackpool

A woman was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday, Oct. 2 after a shooting that resulted in the death of one man.

Fort Collins Police responded to a domestic violence call and reports of a shooting in the 3000 block of Blue Leaf Court at 12:42 a.m. Officers found 63-year-old Nancy Baker at the scene as well as a deceased male, according to a press release from FCPD.


The Larimer County Coroner’s Office will release the cause and manner of death, as well as the man’s identity after the family has been notified. 

Baker was taken into custody and booked on first-degree murder and domestic violence charges, and is currently being held at the Larimer County Jail.

The Coloradoan reported that court proceedings have already begun to take place. At a hearing Tuesday afternoon, it was decided that Baker would be held without bond, as she is charged with a capital offense.

Baker’s lawyer, Kathryn Hay, has “filed a number of motions in Baker’s case, including one that would prohibit police from reaching out or interviewing Baker except through her designated counsel in relation to the murder case or any other pending litigation,” as reported by The Coloradoan

Baker’s next hearing is set at 8:15 a.m. Oct. 11.

Anyone with information regarding this incident who has not already spoken to police has been asked to contact Detective Siobhan Seymour at 970-416-2195. People can also contact Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 or www.stopcriminals.org.
