Jimmy Lee Cordova Facing Charges after Fatal Kidnapping Collision and Polioce Chase through Westminster and Denver

WESTMINSTER, CO (June 9, 2018) – A man is facing 18 charges related to an alleged crime spree, including kidnapping and a fatal car crash.
The incident began Saturday when Westminster police received a report from a woman claiming to be the victim of a domestic violence incident. She reported that she was being assaulted and was being held against her will in a car somewhere near 104th Avenue and Federal Boulevard.
Police caught up to the vehicle, driven by 28-year-old Jimmy Lee Cordova, that fled. Westminster PD chased after the vehicle until they lost visual near East 84th Avenue and South Federal Boulevard. A few minutes later, 911 dispatch received several calls saying Cordova crashed his car near the on-ramp of the westbound Highway 36 from Federal.
The woman in the car, identified by the Adams and Broomfield Office of the Coroner as 51-year-old Kimberly Ambrose of Arvada, died in the crash. A pedestrian on the road also sustained injuries.
Cordova carjacked another car which he crashed near 91st Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard. After that second crash, he was able to get out and tried to carjack more vehicles, but was unsuccessful. When officers caught up to him, he fought with officers before they were able to take him into custody.
Cordova is facing a long list of charges including first-degree murder, second-degree kidnapping, false imprisonment, robbery, third-degree domestic violence assault, aggravated motor vehicle theft, driving under the influence of drugs, criminal attempt to commit class five or six felony, obstructing a police officer, resisting arrest, vehicular homicide/ DUI resulting in death, vehicular eluding resulting in death to another, vehicular homicide/ reckless driving resulting in death, obstruction of a telephone, drive vehicle under restraint – revoked, failed to remain at scene of an accident with death, failed to notify police of an accident, and, finally, failed to remain/ return to scene as directed.
Cordova was brought to a local hospital to be treated for injuries and has not yet been booked into jail, according to Denver Police.
Cordova already had previous run-ins with the law since he was 18 years old. He has already faced charges of felony trespassing, liquor possession by a minor, bribery, felony fraud, criminal impersonation, several felony escape attempts, parole violation, several drug charges and weapons offenses.
No additional information has been released to the public at this time.
