(Phoenix, Arizona) – On May 27, 2022, a Maricopa County Grand Jury charged Christopher Hoopes (06/1985) with two felony charges. The charges are the result of the death of Hoopes’ wife, Colleen Hoopes, which occurred in Tempe on May 20, 2022.
Hoopes has been indicted for one count of Second-Degree Murder, a Class 1 dangerous, domestic violence felony and one count of unlawful discharge of a weapon, a Class 6 felony.
“The victim in this case was an extremely talented dancer, beloved by her community,” stated County Attorney Rachel Mitchell. “Her life was cut short, and this office will seek justice for her and her family, who are devastated by her death.”
A charge in a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
