DENVER (AP) - A man accused of shoving his second wife to her death off a cliff in Rocky Mountain National Park has lost his bid to bar evidence involving the death of his first wife.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/CIHZZO ) a federal judge decided Tuesday the circumstances surrounding the death of 58-year-old Harold Henthorn’s first wife, Sandra “Lynn,” are similar to Toni Henthorn’s death and can be submitted at trial.

Lynn Henthorn was crushed to death by an SUV in 1995.

Prosecutors say Harold Henthorn pushed Toni Henthorn, to her death during a scenic hike in September 2012.

The judge also ruled Tuesday that prosecutors can introduce evidence of an incident in May 2011 in which a beam fell on Toni Henthorn while she and her husband were at their vacation home.
