PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - A judge has rejected a request for a hearing on how The Pueblo Chieftain obtained a sealed document in the case of Harry Carl Mapps, who is accused of killing three people and setting fire to their home.

KRDO-TV reports (https://tinyurl.com/mqjkjcm ) the judge told defense attorney David Lipka Tuesday he could investigate on his own how the newspaper obtained the arrest warrant affidavit for the 59-year-old Mapps.

Mapps faces charges of first-degree murder and arson. He is accused of fatally shooting 55-year-old Kim Tuttle, her 51-year-old husband, Reggie, and their 33-year-old daughter, Dawn Roderick.

Their bodies were found in the Tuttles’ home in Rye after it was damaged by fire on Nov. 27.

Mapps was arrested a month later in Oklahoma.



His next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 18.
