Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
More is known about the accusations against a Fort Carson soldier charged with killing an Iraqi prisoner.
Prosecutors laid out their case against Staff Sergeant Shane Werst during a court-martial Tuesday at Fort Hood Texas. They say Werst tracked down a suspected Iraqi insurgent during a raid and then shot him repeatedly even though the man was unarmed and cooperative.
After the slaying, prosecutors say Werst tried to cover up his actions. They say he pulled out a non-military gun, fired it at a wall and then planted it on the dead man.
He faces up to life in prison without parole if convicted of premeditated murder and obstruction of justice.
Werst was a member of Fort Carson's Third Brigade Combat Team, which is part of the Fort Hood-based Fourth Infantry Division.
