ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Police investigating the slaying of a socialite in Aspen initially believed that stuffing a body into trash bags, moving it to a closet, and flipping a queen size mattress to conceal blood stains was impossible for one person.

A consortium of media won the release of the arrest affidavit for one of three suspects in the slaying of Nancy Pfister. Pfister’s parents co-founded the Buttermilk ski area.

Ex-anesthesiologist William Styler, 66, told authorities he acted alone in the Feb. 24 slaying, and last month pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Charges against Styler’s wife, Nancy Styler, and Pfister’s personal assistant, Katherine Carpenter were dropped after William Styler, who appeared in court in a wheelchair, confessed.

A judge Friday released Nancy Styler’s arrest affidavit.
