Motion To Unseal Files In Sir Mario Owens’ Death Penalty Case

DENVER (AP) – Media organizations have asked a judge to unseal court files in a Colorado death penalty case.

Attorney Steven Zansberg filed a motion Friday with Arapahoe District Court in the case of Sir Mario Owens and a hearing was set for March 6.

Zansberg represents a group of media organizations, including The Associated Press.

Owens was convicted and sentenced to die in 2008 in the deaths of Javad Marshall-Fields and his fiancee, Vivian Wolfe. His case is now being appealed.

Owens’ lawyers have also separately asked the U.S. Supreme Court to order that the records be made public.
