Trial For Officer Accused Of Shooting Elk To Remain In Boulder

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – The trial of a former Boulder police officer accused of shooting and killing an elk will not be moved out of Boulder.

Sam Carter’s attorneys argued the case got so much publicity he can’t get a fair trial in Boulder, but the judge disagreed.

The trial is scheduled to start next month.

On Tuesday another former officer involved, Brent Curnow, agreed to a plea deal that will keep him out of jail.
