BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado district attorney will not seek the death penalty against a man accused of fatally shooting three people in Coal Creek Canyon in April.

The Daily Camera (https://bit.ly/2hqJnzv ) reported Wednesday Garrett Coughlin has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder after deliberation and three counts of felony murder in the deaths of Wallace White, Kelly Sloat-White and Emory Fraker.

Garnett also is charged with one count of aggravated robbery.

Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett said in a motion filed Tuesday while the murder charges are all Class 1 felonies that are eligible for the death penalty, he would not pursue it.
