DENVER (AP) - A 25-year-old man has been charged with strangling his girlfriend, who had a restraining order against him at the time of her death.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/2eKzbi2 ) the Denver District Attorney’s Office charged Jose Vallejo-Cano with murder Tuesday.

Twenty-three-year-old Araceli Esparza Miranda was found dead inside an SUV on Oct. 29. Court documents say Vallejo-Cano was found at the scene hiding behind a trash bin.

The victim’s mother had called police to report that the suspect removed the monitored ankle bracelet he was required to wear after his release from jail in a separate domestic violence case.

Vallejo-Cano was arrested earlier this month after being accused of choking Miranda.

He was released from jail on $30,000 bail and a court order was put in place to prevent him from having contact with Miranda.
