LA PLATA COUNTY — The murder trial for the La Plata County father accused in the death of his 13-year-old son began Thursday.
Mark Redwine was arrested in Washington state and indicted in 2017 on charges of second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death in the 2012 murder of Dylan, his son, in Monument.
Dylan’s remains were found in a remote area northwest of his father’s home near Vallecito Reservoir in May 2013. Investigators said DNA evidence taken from the father’s home and truck tied him to the murder. An autopsy found there was evidence of blunt force trauma on Dylan's body.
The indictment alleges the father and son had several disagreements before and during a court-ordered visit in 2012. The arguments centered on a custody dispute between his parents and reportedly disturbing and compromising photos of his father.
