Joseph Peace Murder Trial

Crime

Joseph Peace is accused of murdering Eric Ludwick in March of 2018. Ludwick, was driving Peace when he was shot in the lung and found deceased at the intersection of Ridge drive and 28 road.

Today’s trial consisted of testimony from CBI, Grand Junction Police Department and Ludwick’s mother. The defense was denied their three witnesses by the judge, due to all three being people Ludwick is claimed to have assaulted. The judge did not allow this, because Peace did not know about these events prior to the shooting.

Both sides rested their case, and will be back on July 2nd for their closing arguments.
