22-year-old sentenced to two life sentences for 2019 stabbing murders in Lakewood Park

The First Judicial District Attorney’s Office announced Monday that a 22-year-old man has been sentenced to two consecutive life sentences for two murders in Belmar Park in 2019.

Before sentencing on Friday, Vicente Enrique Orozco was convicted by a Jefferson County jury on two counts of first-degree murder, one count of felony manslaughter and two counts of aggravated robbery on March 10.

Orozco was found guilty of stabbing 19-year-old Rodriguez Rivera multiple times at Lakewood Park on August 15, 2019. The DA’s office said Rivera was playing football with a friend in Belmar Park when he was attacked.

The body of 61-year-old Steven Sandvik was found later in the morning near the Fallen Firefighters Memorial in the park, showing the victim had also been stabbed and robbed several times.

Sandvik was pronounced dead at the scene, while Rivera was taken to a hospital, where he died five days later.

A few days later, based on an anonymous tip, police identified Orozco, 19, as a suspect and arrested him on August 21, 2019.
