Isiah Alexander Bennett, 24, was charged Monday in Jefferson County court with first-degree murder in the June 27 death of his cousin, Raymond Jutting.

ARVADA, Colo. — A suspect was charged with first-degree murder on Monday after police said he shot and killed his cousin in Arvada.

Isiah Alexander Bennett, 24, appeared remotely in Jefferson County court and was charged in the death last month of Raymond Jutting, 26.

Arvada Police Department officers responded to a call of a shooting June 27 at 7846 Marshall St., according to a press release from the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office.

When officers arrived at the home, they found Jutting in the front yard, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Police said Jutting was pronounced dead on the scene.

Arvada Police said that Jutting and Bennett were cousins.

According to the arrest affidavit, Jutting arrived at the house and got into an argument with Bennett. Bennett was inside the house, and Jutting was in the yard, and they were arguing through a window. The fight escalated, and Bennett fired multiple shots at Jutting, the affidavit says.

Police said the argument was over a "long-standing issue."

Bennett was arrested and booked at the Jefferson County jail. He was being held without bail and was due back in court on Oct. 1.
