Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper's decision to grant a reprieve last week to an infamous death row inmate means that a man's life is literally on the line in the 2014 gubernatorial race.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper's decision to block the execution of convicted killer Nathan Dunlap for as long as he is governor infuriated victims' relatives and drew quick criticism from Republicans ahead of the 2014 election.
The fate of one Colorado mass murderer has become entwined with that of another as Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper struggles with whether to save the life of a notorious death row inmate.
Prosecutors said Monday they will seek the death penalty for James Eagan Holmes, the accused shooter in the deadly Aurora, Colo. theater massacre last summer.
A judge entered a plea of not guilty Tuesday on behalf of Aurora theater shooting suspect James Eagan Holmes after rejecting a request from his attorneys for more time to formulate a plea.
Until recently, the race for district attorney in Colorado's 18th Judicial District wasn't on anyone's list of must-watch 2012 political faceoffs. Then a gunman killed 12 people and wounded 58 at the Century 16 theater in Aurora.
"He refuses to participate in the program, he refuses to acknowledge any wrongdoing," said Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler.
"He's made himself into Nathan Dunlap's guardian angel," said George Brauchler, the Republican district attorney in the office that prosecuted Dunlap.
