Former UW Athlete Charged in Murder

Laramie, Wy – A 31 year old Laramie man has been charged with shooting and killing 57-year-old Henry McCone, also of Laramie.
Thursday night, police arrested Aaron E. Smith at his home and charged him with homicide. Police say the two men knew each other, but they are NOT saying anything yet about a possible
motive for the shooting.
Police Commander Dale Stalder says authorities received a call Thursday afternoon that a man had fallen off a ladder while working at an apartment complex. It wasn't until rescue workers arrived that they found the man had been shot. Smith is a former University of Wyoming basketball player.
