The man police allege shot his roommate more than a month ago and left him for dead has been brought before a judge to face charges after he fled to Colorado, and a newly released evidence log in the case indicates drug activity may be linked to the robbery.
Comanche County Sheriff's Office deputies escorted 21-year-old Jordan Neuwirth back to Comanche County from Denver County Colorado Wednesday night, and he's been in custody at the Comanche County Detention Center since. He appeared in a local courthouse Friday morning before Carter County Special Judge Thomas K. Baldwin, who was appointed to the case due to the fact that Neuwirth's father is a district judge here and all Comanche County judges recused themselves from handling the proceedings.
Neuwirth was charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of larceny of a vehicle related to the June 30 attack on 21-year-old Ryan Mosley, which was discovered around 11:15 a.m. Neuwirth was ordered to be held in lieu of a $150,000 bond and to wear a GPS monitoring bracelet upon release. He is also forbidden from having any contact with or attempting to arrange any contact with Mosley.
The two men were reportedly living together at an apartment, 210 SW 17th, when they got into a fight, an affidavit said. There was a window broken at the apartment, blood in the bathroom, down the hallway and blood in the west bedroom, where Mosley was found by his mother and eventually his girlfriend. He was lying face-down on the floor suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his abdomen.
Before seeking medical treatment, Mosley allegedly told police and his mother that Neuwirth was the one who shot him, removed items from the apartment, then took the keys to his vehicle and fled.
