26-year-old woman charged in Longmont postal carrier shooting
Jason Schaefer Death – Obituary : 26-year-old Devan Rebecca Schreiner accused of fatally shooting a postal carrier in Longmont has been charged with first-degree murder, authorities said.
Schreiner was charged Tuesday in Boulder District Court with first-degree murder in the death of her ex-boyfriend, 33-year-old Jason Schaefer.
Schreiner, was advised of her rights by Boulder District Judge Thomas Mulvahill.
Mulvahill noted that because Schreiner is charged with a Class 1 felony, she will not be eligible for bond until a hearing can be held.
Schreiner is now set for a proof-evident presumption great hearing on Jan. 10 to determine if there is probable cause for the case to continue and for Schreiner to continue to he held without bond.
Schreiner’s attorney, Jennifer Engelmann, said Schreiner was willing to waive her right to a preliminary hearing within 35 days of the filing of charges to accommodate the hearing.
Engelmann added that depending on the amount of evidence and the complexity of the case, she might ask for the hearing to be pushed back even further.
First-degree murder carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Schaefer had previously received threats from Schreiner, according to a witness in the case.
Schreiner had also worked at the Longmont post office until two weeks before the shooting, when she was fired because of an incident between her and Schaefer.
According to the affidavit, Schreiner recently had been working at the Loveland post office as a mail carrier.
Police did obtain GPS information from the U.S. Postal Service on Schreiner’s scanner, but the location information obtained was redacted in the affidavit. However, the GPS information did indicate the scanner was stationary for an extended period of time, which a U.S. Postal Service investigator said was unusual.
At 5:27 p.m. Oct. 13, Schreiner called Longmont police and agreed to come in and speak with detectives.
She drove to the station, and her vehicle was towed to an evidence lot.
Schreiner’s statements to police were redacted in the affidavit.
