Casey Lee Albee, 28, of Loveland, has been arrested for the July 3, 2013 stabbing incident in Loveland that resulted in the death of Stephanie Smith and left Albee and another man injured. Albee's charges are related to his alleged assault of the second male.
Casey Albee was charged with:
CRS 18-3-203 (1)(g) Second Degree Assault/Serious Bodily Injury, a class four felony
CRS 18-3-202(1)(a(2)(a) First Degree Assault/Deadly Weapon/Heat of Passion, a class five felony
The Larimer County Sheriff's Office was summoned to an incident in the 4000-block of West Eisenhower Boulevard, just outside Loveland city limits, at 2330 hours on July 3, 2013. The initial call reported that a female had been stabbed at a residence there. LCSO and Loveland Police units arrived and identified three injured persons who were transported to Loveland area hospitals. According to the Larimer County Coroner, Stephanie Smith died as a result of the single stab wound she received during the incident.
Albee and Smith allegedly attacked the second man, a 38-year-old Loveland resident, after an altercation which had caused the second man to leave a party they were all attending. Smith and Albee followed the second man to his home where the stabbings occurred.
No charges have been filed in the stabbing of Stephanie Smith or Casey Albee as those actions were determined to be in self defense.
Mr. Albee is currently in the Larimer County Jail with a $7,500 bond.
The charges are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
