Charges filed against home invasion suspects

for fourth suspect

Two people alleged to be involved in the May 16 home invasion and stabbing in Golden had charges formally filed against them on May 27 in the Jefferson County courthouse.

Caleb Dwayne Williams, 21, has 30 counts of charges against him, including felony charges of attempted murder in the second degree, first-degree assault, eight counts of attempted aggravated robbery, and two counts each of first-degree burglary, menacing, conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. He is also charged with third-degree assault and false imprisonment, both misdemeanors, and 10 counts of violent crime.

Williams is in the Jefferson County Jail on a $500,000 cash bond.

Julia Katharine Johnson, 19, was charged with accessory to burglary, accessory to robbery and accessory to menacing. All are felonies.

Johnson is also being held at the Jefferson County jail on a $200,000 cash bond.

A court date for next appearances for Williams and Johnson, who have not entered pleas, has not been set.

A 17-year-old male is also a suspect in the case. He is being tried as a juvenile. On May 23, a petition in delinquency was filed accusing him of felony charges of attempted murder in the second degree, first-degree assault, three counts of first-degree burglary, six counts of attempted aggravated robbery, three counts of conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary and two counts each of menacing and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. Two misdemeanor charges include third-degree assault and false imprisonment, and he is also charged with aggravated juvenile offender.

The search for a fourth suspect, Cody Aaron Jones, 20, continues. In addition to a warrant for his alleged involvement in the May 16 home invasion, Jones has an active nationwide warrant for an unrelated crime, Golden police Capt. Joe Harvey said. He is on probation for second-degree burglary charges, obstructing a peace officer and theft.

Anybody with information on Jones or his possible whereabouts is asked to call the Golden Police Department at 303-384-8045.

The home invasion occurred at about 9 p.m. on May 16. Three armed males forced their way into a home in the 1900 block of Washington Avenue. Police say one of the arrested suspects said the group was expecting to find $10,000 in cash and drugs, but had gone to the wrong house.

As the homeowner Jesse Swift, began to physically struggled with the invaders, his wife ran from the house and called 911 from a neighbor’s home. At the time, the Swifts’ two children, ages 4 and 6, were sleeping in their bedrooms in the basement.

Jesse Swift, a Golden middle school teacher, and Williams both suffered stab wounds from the struggle and were transported to the hospital. Swift underwent immediate surgery for wounds to a kidney and a punctured lung.

Williams was released by the hospital last week, into the custody of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.

Swift was expected to make a full recovery, according to a May 18 statement from the family, who has asked for privacy and declined to be interviewed as of the date of the incident.
