First-degree murder charge filed after woman’s body is found in vehicle in Arvada

Multiple charges have been filed in the death of a 38-year-old woman whose body was found in a vehicle in Arvada in June.

Christopher Louis Moffat, 36, has been charged with first-degree murder, tampering with a deceased human body and tampering with physical evidence, all felonies, according to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office.

On June 19, Arvada police were called about a woman inside a vehicle at 6431 Welch Court, according to a Monday news release. When officers arrived they found Veronica Sarinana deceased in the vehicle.

Moffat and Sarinana had been in a “relationship,” the release said. The coroner’s office determined her cause of death to be by strangulation.

Moffat is currently being held in Grand County. He’s scheduled to appear in district court in Jefferson County on Aug. 6.
