POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - Three people are facing trial in the death of a man whose decapitated body was found along a remote dirt road northwest of Powell.

A circuit court judge last week referred the case against 51-year-old John Louis Marquez up to district court, where he’ll enter a plea to first-degree charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Juan Antonio Guerra-Torres.

Park County Sheriff’s Investigator Joe Torczon said in court that 28-year-old Pedro Garcia Jr. told authorities his sister, 27-year-old Sandra Garcia, asked him to kill her boyfriend because Guerra-Torres owed drug money to people who were threatening his family.

Torczon said the two enlisted Marquez’s help. More testing will determine if a glove found by the body has DNA that matches Marquez.
