Man who shot another man over $500 debt formally charged with murder

Posted: Updated:

YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) – The man accused of killing another man over a $500 debt has been formally charged with murder.

Robert Moore appeared before a Yuma County judge Wednesday afternoon.

His defense attorney objected to media covering the hearing, but the judge overruled the request.

According to the state prosecutor, Moore had gotten into an argument with another Yuma man, Jose Orejel, over a $500 debt before driving to his home and shooting him multiple times last week.

Orejel was rushed to the hospital, and died from his injuries a few days later.

Moore's next court appearance is November 18.

He remains behind bars on $1,000,000 cash-only bond.
