Voyles:  Connie Villa, 35 of Casa Grande, faces 11 charges

FLORENCE, AZ (1/8/14) – On Wednesday, January 8, 2014, Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles announced 11 felony counts filed against Connie Villa, 35 of Casa Grande, including first degree murder and four counts of attempted first degree murder.

The Casa Grande Police Department and Pinal County Attorney’s Office worked closely throughout CGPD’s investigation of the alleged Christmas Day incident resulting in the death of a 13 year old girl.

On Monday, January 6, the Pinal County Grand Jury returned a True Bill and Pinal County Attorney Voyles filed an indictment against Villa with charges to include one count of premeditated First Degree Murder, a class 1 felony; four counts of Attempted First Degree Murder, class 2 felonies; one count of Kidnapping, a class 2 felony; and four counts of Child Abuse, class 2 felonies. 

The eleventh charge, often referred to as felony murder, represents an alternative charge to Count One, premeditated First Degree Murder, as it accuses Villa of committing the crime of Child Abuse and in the course, furtherance, or immediate flight from that offense she committed murder.

All but one count carries an additional allegation of domestic violence and another 10 charges signify Dangerous Crimes Against Children.

Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles stated, “Tragedy from abuse strikes far too many families, and unfortunately, the holidays often represent an increase in domestic violence cases.  In Pinal, I seek to administer justice for all crime victims as they remain my top priority.”

Villa is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.  She remains held non-bondable at the Pinal County Jail.
