FRISCO, Colo. (AP) - A judge has denied a motion to dismiss the case against a man charged in a fatal beating at a Frisco motel.

The Summit Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1yBdFMe ) 42-year-old Charles Lee Sattler, of Oxford, Michigan, wanted his case thrown out under Colorado’s “Make My Day” law, which allows the use of deadly force when someone illegally enters a dwelling and there’s reason to believe that person will commit a crime.

Prosecutors say Sattler, a former amateur boxer, beat 38-year-old Blake Bostic to death during an argument at the Snowshoe Motel on April 14. Sattler’s attorneys say their client was acting in self-defense.

But Judge Karen Romeo ruled Monday there is no evidence Bostic unlawfully entered Sattler’s room.

Sattler is charged with second-degree murder and first-degree assault.
