A Grand Junction woman who allegedly loaned her car to a man accused of murder makes her first appearance in court today.
20–year–old Jessica Mills had been sought by the Mesa County Sheriff's Office. She was captured Saturday at a motel in Norwood.
Mills is accused of lending her car to Christopher Wieberg,
who is alleged to have shot and killed Thomas Martinez last October in a dispute over drugs. Mills later lied to investigators about her involvement.
Today Mills was advised by Judge Brian Flynn on her charges as an accessory to murder. She could face two to six years in jail if convicted. She was also remanded in custody in Mesa County under a $500,000 bond.
Her next court appearance is scheduled for next Tuesday.
