The family of a woman beaten to death by her husband is claiming in a lawsuit that Denver police have a low priority for domestic violence calls.
There has been no denying that Richard Kirk fired the shot that killed his wife, but he had eaten part of a marijuana laced cookie, and his lawyer may very well argue he was not responsible for his actions.
A Denver man accused of killing his wife after eating marijuana-infused candy has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.
A Denver woman who was found fatally beaten more than six hours after a neighbor first called 911 for help might have survived if dispatchers had sent police sooner, her family said in a federal lawsuit filed Monday.
The parents and sister of a Denver woman was allegedly shot to death by her husband four months ago say they are doing their best to raise the couple’s three boys.
A judge has ruled there is enough evidence for a man accused of killing his wife in Denver’s Observatory Park neighborhood to stand trial. The preliminary hearing for Richard Kirk was Friday afternoon.
After a deadly shooting, while the victim was on the phone with emergency dispatchers, Denver ordered its independent audit committee to look at how long it takes police officers to respond.
An audit says the Denver police’s response time was slightly less than normal in the case of a woman who was shot and killed 13 minutes into her 911 call.
A Denver police dispatcher has been fired after failing to relay key information to officers responding to a woman who was killed 12 minutes into a 911 call.
The dispatcher involved in a 911 call that ended with a woman shot to death allegedly by her husband is being disciplined.
