Joseph Koenig, Nicholas “Mitch” Karol-Chik, and Zachary Kwak, all 18 and from Arvada, were arrested in their homes in connection with rock-throwing attacks and first-degree murder charges in the death of Alexa Bartell, a 20-year-old woman whose vehicle was struck by large landscaping rock thrown at her car, resulting in her death.

According to investigators, the rock-throwing spree began around 10 p.m. on April 19 in Westminster, Co., near Denver.

During that hour, the authorities said, the three men drove a black 2016 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck around the county and threw large landscaping rocks at six vehicles, including a minivan and an S.U.V., hitting their windshields and driver’s side windows. Those drivers had minor injuries.

Around 10:45 p.m., the authorities said that Bartell was driving north on Indiana Street when her Chevrolet Spark, a subcompact, became the last vehicle struck during the spree.

Moments before she was killed, Ms. Bartell was on her phone talking to a friend “when the phone went silent,” according to the sheriff’s office.

Her friend tracked her phone and drove to a location on Indiana Street, and found Bartell “fatally wounded inside her car, which was off the roadway in a field.”

It was unclear which of the men was driving, but “all three are suspected of throwing rocks,” the sheriff’s office said.

“Ultimately, mobile device forensics and supporting information from the public helped lead to the identification and arrest of the suspects,” according to the sheriff’s office, which did not release additional details.

The men, who were booked into the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office jail, are scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
