GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4)– The former Weld County officer accused of killing his wife is not allowed to leave Colorado while he awaits trial.
The judge overseeing the murder case made the ruling Wednesday when Thomas Fallis appeared in a Weld County Courtroom.
Fallis, 34, was taken into custody at his home in Bloomington, Ind., where he was living with his children on Nov. 18. Police say he shot 28-year-old Ashley Fallis on New Year’s Day 2012 after a fight at their Evans home.
Police first ruled her death a suicide, but investigators reopened the case earlier this year after allegations that officers mishandled evidence.
Fallis’ family members claim Thomas Fallis had something to do with the death and that statements from key witnesses were omitted or changed from the original police report, including a statement from Ashley’s 6-year-old daughter.
The indictment says Thomas Fallis became angry during a New Year’s party hosted by the couple, and later fought with Ashley over smoking before getting a gun and killing her.
