DENVER (CBS4) – A bill that would strengthen Colorado’s stalking laws passed the state House on Monday.

The bill was prompted by the death of Vonnie Flores in Leadville. She was shot to death by a neighbor who’d been stalking her for five years.

Flores’ husband says tougher laws are needed.

“One of these laws that they are trying to change now; if one of them would have been in place my wife would be alive now,” Dave Flores said.

The bill requires automatic restraining orders and a court appearance before a stalking suspect is released from jail.
