Two Fremont County men have been charged with murder in connection with the 2019 shooting death of two Riverton residents and a third man faces a lesser charge in the incident.

In addition, a fourth person is to be charged in connection with the shooting deaths of Jocelyn Watt and Rudy Perez, according to Fremont County Attorney Patrick LeBrun.

LeBrun told Cowboy State Daily that Bryce Teran and Patrick Sunrhodes Jr. have each been charged with two counts of felony murder, while Korbin Headley has been charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary.

He added the fourth person, also a Fremont County resident, is scheduled to be charged.

LeBrun declined to comment further on the case.

The bodies of Watt, a member of the Northern Arapahoe tribe, and Perez were found in their Riverton home in January 2019. Following her murder, Watt’s family heavily promoted the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women movement.

Watt’s sister, Jade Wagon, was also murdered last year, in an unconnected case.

The Watt and Perez murders have been investigated by the Riverton Police Department, the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office, the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation and the FBI.
