ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — A man has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder after a man was found dead inside a home when Englewood police (EPD) responded there for a welfare check earlier this week.
Around 10:30 a.m. Monday, EPD officers responded to 50 West Hampden Avenue to conduct that check, and found a man dead. It appeared that he may have died from blunt force trauma to his body, EPD said.

Through interviews, detectives developed a person of interest in the homicide and later that same day arrested 27-year-old Lucious Malveaux, Jr. He faces additional charges in addition to first-degree murder and was booked into the Arapahoe County Jail, EPD said.
Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office identified the victim on Wednesday as Bobby Gene Collins, Jr. and ruled the death was a homicide due to blunt force injuries.
If you have any information about this homicide, contact EPD at 303-761-7410.
