The Grand Junction woman arrested in Highlands Ranch in early March in connection with a 2016 missing person case faced her first day in court Monday, appearing before an 8th Judicial District Court magistrate for an advisement hearing.

Cynthia Elaine Wilkinson, 57, was arrested in Highlands Ranch on March 4 and transferred to Larimer County in connection with a 2016 missing person case, according to a previous release from the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.

Since her arrest, Wilkinson has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder after deliberation, a class 1 felony; and theft ranging from $100,000 to $1 million, a class 3 felony; according to court records.

Wilkinson appeared virtually before Magistrate Cara Boxberger Monday afternoon where she was advised of her rights.

Boxberger noted that, because of the charges that Wilkinson faces, she is not eligible for bond and will remain in custody.

Wilkinson is scheduled for a first appearance hearing before Chief Judge Susan Blanco at 8:30 a.m. March 23; she remains in custody at the Larimer County Jail in Fort Collins without bond.

The Sheriff’s Office has not released any additional information on the circumstances of Wilkinson’s arrest, including what the 2016 case was or how she is believed to be tied to it. Her mug shot photo also is yet to be released.
