In summer 2011, we told you about the arrest of Ricky Scott for the murder of Anthony Silva, a Fort Carson soldier; see our original coverage below. Now, Scott has been convicted of first-degree murder in the crime, which appears to have taken place after a fight over $200 worth of marijuana -- a tale told in the probable cause statement also seen here.
As we reported last year, Silva wanted to re-enlist in the Army, but a bad back made that impossible -- so he planned to head home to Illinois. Unfortunately, his flight was cancelled, so he got a room at a Motel 6 on Paris Street while waiting for his father to pick him up. He was last seen walking his dog.
