A 40-year-old man in Colorado will spend more than a decade behind bars for killing his roommate, strangling the 29-year-old victim to death from behind and claiming he was acting in self-defense. Summit County District Court Judge Karen Romeo on Thursday ordered Miles Tovar to serve 12 years in a state correctional facility for the 2019 slaying of Brendan Rye, authorities announced.

A jury in March 2024 found Tovar guilty of one count of reckless manslaughter as well as one count of first-degree criminal trespass, both felonies.

In addition to the 12 years for manslaughter, Romeo also sentenced Tovar to two years on the trespassing charge, to run consecutively, meaning one after the other. Tovar was given credit for 598 days already served as he awaited trial.

Before formally sentencing Tovar, Romeo emphasized his “extensive criminal history” over the last two decades, much of which involved alcohol-related violent incidents, as well as his numerous arrests and accompanying aggravating circumstances, according to a news release from Colorado’s Fifth Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
