A noted Denver attorney filed a lawsuit Monday on behalf of the estate of an inmate executed in Oklahoma.
The race for governor in Colorado is in a statistical tie, with Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper in a dead heat with Republican challenger Bob Beauprez.
Gov. John Hickenlooper has spoken with seven prosecutors and two defense attorneys as he ponders whether to grant clemency to Nathan Dunlap, who faces execution in August for ambushing and killing four people in 1993.
For James Holmes, “justice is death,” prosecutors said Monday in announcing they will seek his execution if he is convicted in the Colorado movie theater attack that killed 12 people.
