Bravo pleads guilty to 2nd-degree murder

July 23, 2011 • Local News

After eight years of waiting, the family of murder victim Susan Amos-Bravo received resolution, Friday, when Ramon Bravo, 37, pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of second-degree murder for the slaying of his estranged wife.

The incident took place on April 26, 2003. Special Prosecutor Matt Chandler said, “She returned from a T-ball game, went into her house and was never seen alive again.”

He discussed the marriage and repeated incidents of the domestic abuse. “It was a classic case of overkill and then he (Bravo) staged the scene to humiliate and to mislead investigators.”

Chandler spoke about the history of the case, initially brought against Bravo by 5th District Court in November 2003, and the civil suit filed by the family against Bravo for wrongful death, which they won.

The civil suit provided enough evidence that Chandler was brought in from the 9th Judicial District to Login to read more

    There’s a second tragedy here, that is the sentence he got for killing this young lady and the mother of his children. Brave man? Hiding in a closet? He should be locked away indefinitely.

    Its too bad he will be able to get out of jail someday. He should pay with his own life for taking the life of another!

    Too bad he wasn’t brought to justice before he committed this incidious crime. Maybe he will get raped or murdered in prison. It’s the best we can hope for. He doesn’t even deserve to get the 4 days a month for good time. Rot in h*ll Ramon.

    BTW, he had to plead guilty as his wife ran out of money to pay his lawyer. There is justice after all!!

    hmmmmmmmmmmmm, second degree murder? Strange, hiding in a closet, waiting for her return wasn’t pre-meditated? Could have fooled me.

    I am seeing pre-meditated here. How can someone get so lucky to actually torture someone in that manner and get ONLY 12 years!!! Wow, don’t get caught with drugs though…imagine that. That poor mother who found her daughter that way! Poor children who no longer have a mother!!! What the h*ll are they thinkin?????????????????????

    Ramon Bravo got a deal for reasons that will become public real soon. There is alot of cover up in another case that will bring light to why he got such a short sentance. Keep up the good work Roswell Daily Record!

    When in the hell are you young buck cowboy dudes going to load up and take care of all these punk meskins in Roswell. If they are in a gang and carry these tattoos showing what tribe they belong to open up fire on these punkass meskin gangbangers. No limit for this hunting season and would get rid of a huge problem Roswell has had for many years. Time to stop it now.
