A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect this afternoon for most of Southern Colorado. Daytime heating and moisture will combine with a disturbance moving through Colorado to develop numerous thunderstorms. Any one of them will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain. Burn scars and areas that have seen recent heavy rain will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. This FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect through 6pm Wednesday. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat closely for you the next two days.
A Colorado Springs man had his first day in court. David Bean faces one charge of murder for the death of his wife.
Bean reported his wife, Melanie, missing last Monday morning. Later that day, he told police he found her body in her jeep. It was parked in front of a vacant building off of Garden of the Gods Road and Centennial.
In addition to evidence that she was strangled, an autopsy shows her head was cut. Police detectives also found blood in the garage of their home, indicating a struggle there.
