KUSA- A Denver Grand Jury returned a multiple count indictment against a man accused of murdering two men in 2011.

Daryl L. Rasmussen is charged by indictment with two counts of first-degree murder and a dozen other counts including theft, identity theft, aggravated motor vehicle theft, credit card fraud, conspiracy and a pawnbroker act violation.

The charges allege that Rasmussen murdered 63-year-old Ronald Ford and 56-year-old Ramiro Sanchez in late January, 2011.

Both men were found dead inside their home in the 100 block of Stuart Street. Investigators say after Rasmussen killed the men, he stole their car, identities and money.

He was a housekeeper and caregiver for the victims and had been staying at their home in the months before their deaths.

Earlier this year Rasmussen was arrested in California and charged with theft, identity theft and criminal impersonation. However, a judge found there was no probable cause at the time and dismissed the case.

The investigation continued and was taken to the Grand Jury in October of this year. The indictment was handed down Wednesday. It  names four co-defendants accused of conspiracy in helping with the stolen car and other items.
