The father of a Colorado prison guard killed more than a decade ago begged a judge on Thursday not to delay the suspect's trial, despite emerging questions about whether he committed the crime that put him in prison in the first place.
Prosecutors are asking to delay the death penalty trial of an inmate charged with killing a prison guard because of questions raised about his original conviction.
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.
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.
Arapahoe County, outside Denver, has seen "a growing number of drug rips and outright burglaries and robberies of people who have large amounts of marijuana or cash on them," said District Attorney George Brauchler.
Brauchler unsuccessfully sought to delay the trial last week because he said defense lawyers waited until a month before the trial to present evidence that Montour was wrongfully convicted in his daughter's death.
